New online training course on ‘pollinator-friendly farming’ released.

The National Biodiversity Data Centre is delighted to release a new online training course on ‘pollinator-friendly farming’ for farmers, farm advisors and agricultural students.

The course aims to help farmers make their farms more pollinator-friendly,  with information on what wild pollinators need, in terms of food, safety and shelter and what evidence-based actions can be taken to make farmland more pollinator-friendly. 

We hope the course will give farmers an insight into the wonderful world of pollinating insects and why pollinators are so important on the farm and in the wider countryside. 

Just go to our ‘Biodiversity Learning Platform’ to try the course, it will take around 30 minutes to complete.

We hope the course will provide inspiration to farmers to make their farms more pollinator and biodiversity friendly.

The course is supported by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.
