I’ve just sent several emails out to the people who I hope will be my main contacts during the project. In these initial emails I have told the contacts about my project and how I’d like them to help out, if possible. People I’ve contacted are: Dr. Koos Biesmeijer from the University of Leeds. He studies habitat loss and its impact on pollinators and, primarily, bees.
Dr. Mark Goddard from the University of Leeds who is studying the impact of urban pollinator habitat on pollinators.
Tim Harberd who is the beekeeper at Meanwood Valley Urban Farm.
Marc Butterworth, a beekeeper in the local area.
Pete Benefer, a local beekeeper contacted via Facebook.
