The Plight of the Bumble Bee

Original ballpoint pen drawing of a buff tailed bumble bee on an original 1985 Royal Mail first day cover with 17p buff Tailed bumble bee stamp.

Created especially in support of the Friends of the Earth ‘Bee Cause’ campaign. They may be tiny but bees play a vital role in nature and our economy. Sadly, they’re in crisis. They’re losing their natural habitats, and are under assault from pesticides, intensive farming and climate change. That’s why Friends of the Earth is urging the British Government and public to join the generation that saves bees with its Bee Cause campaign.
Friends of the Earth hopes to raise awareness about all of our bees, and their role in nature, during the Great British Bee Count from 19th May-30th June 2016.

“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”
Albert Einstein
