Netzwerk Blühender Bodensee
For a blooming Lake Constance region
Pollinating insects such as bees, wild bees, butterflies and hoverflies are important indicators for the condition of a landscape. The decline in pollinating insects, also in the Lake Constance region, indicates that the landscape quality is degrading. Biodiverse habitats are becoming more scarce due to the increasing agricultural intensity and the increase in land use. Especially in the summer months, there is little to no food supply left.
The “Netwerk Blühender Bodensee” advises farmers, municipalities, beekepers, authorities, companies and garden owners. The goal is to make the Lake Constance region more biodiverse and flower-rich again and therefore increase the number of pollinating insects. The network organises target group orientated excursions, workshops and events, and disseminates pratical information.
