Recently, I have been researching the plight of our bees and the ways in which people have been trying to help them. Via The Naked Scientists podcasts I have discovered that people are trying to help bees by planting bee friendly plants and wildflowers in the place of grass, which has taken over much of our open spaces. In addition, urban beekeeping is seeing a boom, particularly in the city of London. Although, the London Beekeepers Association is warning that there are potentially too many bees in the city of London and not enough plants for them to feed on.

I feel that these (bee-friendly planting & urban beekeeping) are two areas, which I will look to focus on further in report.
