Save The Bees campaign
EJF ( Environmental Justice Foundation ) and PAN UK ( Pesticide Action Network ) are working to protect Britain's bees and pollinators. They've produced a short film which explains why bees are so important to our food supplies and economy. I supplied some footage of bumble bees and hover flies for the film.
The film can be viewed on Vimeo here http://vimeo.com/62417267#

In particular, Peter’s book tells of the two years he spent with the very special little otter who plays the part of Tarka in the film.
