Protecting Mining Bees with the Wheal Buzzy project

St Enodoc Golf Club


Written by: Simon Greatorex

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Cornwall AONB, the Wheal Buzzy Project is a unique and innovative project, placing people at the heart of mining bee conservation across important mining areas in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

St Enodoc Golf Club has formed a relationship with the project, through the conservation and management of field scabious within the course land and harvesting of seeds (to help re-estabish wildflower habitats), together with the preservation of habitats required by these bees such as bare ground and early successional dune habitats.
