The NFWI has been campaigning for the creation of an Action Plan since June 2013 and is delighted tha the the final Strategy has now been launched. 

Thanks to all the WI members who got involved with the campaign. While the Strategy is a welcome start point, there is still work to do and the NFWI will continue to campaign to protect bees.
