Abstract/Summary

Declines in insect pollinators have been widely documented. We describe a mass participation initiative to assess numbers of insects visiting flowers in crop and non-crop habitats on farms involved in Linking Environment and Farming (LEAF) Open Farm Sunday (OFS) - an annual event attended by over 150000 people. OFS Pollinator Survey increases participation in biological recording and produces valuable data.
