🚨 See The Bees 🚨

Did you know that we’ve lost almost a third of our bees in recent years?

Bees are dying in Ireland because there is a lack of food for them to eat and places for them to nest safely, and we want to change all of that by planting more pollinator friendly bulbs and flowers all across Ireland.

Gaisce Award has teamed up with the pollinator crew over at @lidlireland to offer bee-spotters of all ages in Ireland an epic chance to win Lidl Ireland vouchers….and if you’re currently a Gaisce Participant, to win an ADVENTURE JOURNEY for your whole group!

🔥Overall Prize: Winner will receive €1,000 worth of Lidl vouchers
🛒One per county: Each winner to receive €100 worth of Lidl vouchers
🥾🏕🏔Group Prize: Gaisce Adventure Journey for up group up to 20 people.*

*You need to be a signed up Gaisce Award Participant to be part of a Gaisce Award Group who has a President's Award Leader.

Right now, we want to help the @allirelandpollinatorplan who are coordinating Ireland’s efforts to look after our all-important biodiversity, find out how many bees are in Ireland and where they are!

🪴So we want you to go out to your gardens, parks or check the pots on your window sills and wait to see when your local neighbour bee arrives.

📸 Snap your best photo and upload it for us to see!

Please remember to be safe while you take your picture – keep your distance and ask for help if you need it. We’re looking for high quality photographs which show a bee landing on a flower close to where you live if possible – help us to #SeeYourBees!
