Dundee Science Centre – Endangered Species
Unfortunately, some of Scotland’s varied wildlife are endangered as a result of human impacts like the destruction of habitat, pollution, hunting and fishing.
One of our threatened species is the Scottish Honeybee, this is a worry because we NEED bees!
These tiny little workers are important because they help pollinate flowers, which helps us grow our healthy fruit and vegetables.
Scottish Bees are in decline and we can all do our bit to encourage them to settle in our gardens and parks and ensure that they are able to play their part in the ecosystem which we know is so important as they are pollinators and are essential in food production.
You can now buy insect hotels garden centres and large shops. They have lots of slots for insects to rest and feel safe and lots of spaces for bees and wee insects.
We can make our own!
