Stop-motion animation: Plant a bee-friendly garden

Did you know that bees need flowers all year round? And that there are bee-friendly flowers for every season? Bees pollinate a third of everything that we eat and drink, from fruit and vegetables to rapeseed and sunflower plants that are turned into oils, as well as cocoa beans, coffee and tea. They play a vital role in supporting biodiversity, too.

Road-testing some new kit, our animators decided to put their efforts to good use, and make this sweet-as-honey stop-motion paper craft animation to help save the beleaguered bee. In it, our little bumblebee finds a friendly flower to pollinate in winter, spring, summer and autumn.
