Defra published a National Pollinator Strategy for England in 2014 to support pollinators across towns, cities and the countryside.
The Greater Bristol Pollinator Strategy steering group have developed a local pollinator strategy for the Greater Bristol urban area to unite organisations and individuals across the city. Read the National Pollinator Strategy.
Supported by Defra, we launched the 2015–2020 Strategy in March 2015 at the first Bristol Pollinator Forum meeting. The steering group reviewed the Strategy aims and Actions for 2016-2020 and the updated Strategy was relaunched in November 2016. The revised Strategy includes the aims we continue to strive towards, and incorporates new actions that will help to achieve these aims.

The aims of the Greater Bristol Pollinator Strategy are to:
- Identify and protect existing habitat for pollinators
- Increase the amount of pollinator habitat
- Raise awareness of pollinators to the public, businesses and private landowners
- Provide best practice guidelines in line with the latest research
We are inviting individuals and organisations to sign up to support the local strategy and become part of the Get Bristol Buzzing initiative.
Together we can collectively work towards improving urban greenspace across Greater Bristol to help these important insects.
The Strategy’s aims and actions will be achieved via an Implementation Plan that will be reviewed annually. Organisations signing up to support the Strategy will be asked to contribute information on the activities they are involved in that can contribute to the Implementation Plan.
