What we do
Bumblebee Ecology & Conservation
We use a variety of methods to understand how bumblebees move on landscapes, what they require for forage, nesting and overwintering habitat and how their life history traits make them vulnerable to environmental stressors.
We frequently give public talks, webinars, bee walks and set up bee information tables. Topics include bee identification, how you can help conserve native bees, and learning about BumbleBeeWatch.
We work with numerous Environmental NGOs, government agencies and other organizations to extend our research findings into the real world.
We are working to understand how human perception has influenced pollinator conservation policy and looking to see where stakeholder collaboration can be best achieved to conserve biodiversity and ecosystem services.
