Entries close soon for a $20,000 funding pool to kickstart pollinator projects.

Beeinventive, the company behind crowdfunding success story Flow Hive, is offering $20,000 to schools and community groups to help make the world a better place for pollinating insects.

Projects may involve direct action such as habitat restoration and preservation, education, or advocacy.

Flow Hive co-inventor Stuart Anderson said, ‘The funding we are making available is something small we can do to help some of the many groups already working to help the world’s 20,000 species of solitary bees and other native pollinators.’

Submissions must be received by June 28 and not-for-profits, schools and community groups can outline their project at www.honeyflow.com.au/pollinator-support.
