, Kinross-Shire, Scotland KY13 9LX, United Kingdom

Thirty Miles from Edinburgh, on the North Sea, lies a blossoming, 20-acre meadow filled with ponds, trails, and wildlife—including thousands of bumblebees. The new sanctuary, the first of its kind to be completely devoted to the pollinators, was established by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and the Bumblebee Conservation Trust for the endangered insects, which are crucial to the world’s environmental health as keystone pollinators. The experiment is working: Now more than 10,000 bumblebees flitter around the park, as visitors bird-watch and hike through the serene Scottish preserve.
