|The University of Bristol Botanical Gardens|
The focus of our stand this year was solitary bees and the team put in a huge amount of effort answering questions and talking to members of the public about the plight of our pollinators and what they can do do help.

Both the Saturday and Sunday passed in a bit of a haze as thousands of people descended on the marquee eager to see our insect collections and learn how to make a solitary bee hotel. We were even able to cater for many overseas visitors thanks to Alfredo who was able to answer questions in Spanish from the Argentinian couple below and our Brazilian team member Carine who could help out the Portugese speaking people.
