Carnaby Street buzzes with biodiversity

Parts of the West End have undergone a natural makeover, in order to create a buzz for the environment. 

Carnaby Street has been turned into what's being dubbed as an insect 'super-highway' - with hundreds of flowers and shrubs specifically planted to attract bees and other pollinators. 

It's all part of Bees' Needs Week, an annual event to promote the actions people can take to protect pollinating insects.

The week will see a hive of activity across the country including a Pollinator Day held by Kew Gardens and a series of Bees and Butterflies walks hosted by the Wildlife Trusts.

5 Ways in which you can do your bit for Bees' Needs Week: 

  1. Grow more flowers, shrubs and trees
  2. Let your garden grow wild
  3. Cut grass less often
  4. Don't disturb insect nests and hibernation spots
  5. Think carefully about whether to use pesticides
