B&Q will be helping Britain to get busy bee-spotting this summer, as it backs the launch of the first Great British Bee Count.
To take part, bee-hunters simply need to download a new, free smartphone app that has been developed by Friends of the Earth, Buglife and B&Q. It is designed to help people easily identify bee species and log sightings when out and about.
The project aims to build the first accurate national picture of how our bees are doing. More than 20 UK bee species are already extinct and about a quarter of the remaining 267 species are at risk.
The data that people collect for the Great British Bee Count will do an important job to help scientists fill in the blanks about where bees are thriving and where they're in trouble.
Information collected will go the National Biodiversity Network to help experts improve their understanding of bees' health and how to protect them.
