Songhive is a folksong project by Rowan Piggott, concerned with raising awareness of the plight of native bees.

Bees are responsible for 80% of pollination in the UK, are essential to biodiversity, and ultimately the future of humanity. Despite all this, we continue to obliterate the pollen-rich plants they depend on, and our governments insist on legalising pesticides that do them harm.
