The Great British Bee Count aims to "help build a nationwide picture of bees’ health". It encourages members of the public to "tell us about the bees you see to help scientists keep track of bees’ health [...] As well as recording your bee sightings for the Great British Bee Count, you can help bees by growing plants they need for food and shelter, at home or in your local area".

It was initiated by a non-governmental organisation/charity and encourages people to participate through an online platform and research & learning. The Great British Bee Count is national in orientation and concerned with environment & sustainability

It was launched in 1st June 2014 and ends on 31st August 2014.
