Hymettus Ltd is the most recent incarnation of an organisation that was
originally established, in 1997, as the Bumblebee Working Group. This later
became the Aculeate Conservation Group.
Over the last decade, many BWARS
members have played important roles in obtaining the necessary funding and
in undertaking research directed by the Bumblebee Working Group and the
Aculeate Conservation Group. Most notable
amongst this research has been the development of techniques for the
practical conservation of bumblebees through the establishment of forage
plants in field margins.
