The Wheen Bee Foundation, a registered charity for bees, together with SGA and the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, is running a major project across Australia to protect and enhance populations of pollinators such as bees and butterflies.  This project is based on Australian bioregions and commenced in rural areas , but now is being extended to urban areas.  For each area, guides have been developed indicating what shrubs, trees, grasses and ground covers, suitable for local climate and soils are most appropriate to attract pollinators.
