Answer for Bees

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have publicised Buglife's Big Bumblebee Hunt on Wildweb. I will continue to seek the inclusion of suitable habitat for London's two rare bumblebees in the landscaping of new developments and the construction of green roofs. Also my biodiversity team are seeking to ensure that the Olympic Park contains habitat for the rare bees.
