Pollinators and why they are wonderful – Hutton Highlights

Hutton Highlights is a James Hutton Institute podcast and back in May, NESBiP was invited to talk about pollinators and why they are wonderful.

Following on from our seminar in March, our new NESBiP Biodiversity Coordinator, Abbie joined The James Hutton Institute (JHI) and Nescan Hub (NESCAN) on the latest Hutton Highlights podcast to talk about pollinators and why they are wonderful. There’s more to them than you think, including moths being a surprise night time super pollinator. We talk through some pollinator bugbears, no mow May and all the different ways you can support our pollinator populations.

Listen to the full episode below.
