I have received the following email from Amie
Hi, I am Amie a 3rd-year university student at Royal Holloway, University of London. I am writing to all Beekeeping associations within the UK to conduct a study for my final year undergraduate project. As I aim to survey beekeepers, I hope that you will be able to assist me.
My project aims to investigate Beekeeper practices within the UK and attitudes held towards wild bee species. I conducted a previous survey at the National Honey Show in October 2023 and now have a revised survey based on the responses from that.
The research project is a core component of my course and thus I would be extremely grateful if you could aid me. My survey takes about 4-5 minutes.
As it is on Google Forms, all answers are anonymous and no personal data is collected (including emails and phone numbers).
The link to the form is https://forms.gle/GrKqeJ5oGvCRLSez7
This is an easy survey taking only a few minutes and does make you ask yourself why you keep bees. It is worth doing if it will aid research into attitudes of beekeepers to the environment.
And don't forget our upcoming AGM:
