The B-line network

Bee on a flower

Did you know?
In Wales, pollinating insects and the wildflower-rich habitats they depend on have drastically declined. Since the 1930s, we have lost 97% of our wildflower-rich grasslands as result of urbanisation and changes in the way we use land. A patchwork of these grasslands remain, but it is becoming increasingly difficult for pollinators to move across our towns, cities and countryside.

To enable pollinators to find food and shelter we need habitats that are bigger, better and more joined up!

A B-lines network for Neath Port Talbot!
Buglife’s Neath Port Talbot B-lines is a 3 year project funded by the National Heritage Lottery Fund, which aims to address this decline in our pollinating insects by creating a network of B-lines, linking wildflower-rich habitats across Neath Port Talbot. 

Working in partnership with local organisations, schools and communities, the project aims to restore and create 40 hectares of wildflower habitat, helping to support insect pollinators and other wildlife. The B-lines will be able to link wildlife sites and residential areas together, providing opportunities for people to experience nature close to hand.

Our role in the local B-lines project
As part of our commitment to help create a sustainable planet, we are working in partnership with the B-lines project to improve their green spaces for the benefit of both people and wildlife.

We are working with Buglife Cymru to identify which of our green spaces can be included in the project and how we can improve these spaces to support wildlife.

To help us plan what we do, we need your help. Please fill out our short survey to have your say and give us your opinions.
