How You Can Help
submit photos

Bumble Bee Watch is a collaborative effort to track and conserve North America’s bumble bees. By joining the website, you can submit photos of bumble bees to start a virtual bumble bee collection. Submissions help researchers determine the status and conservation needs of bumble bees and help locate rare or endangered populations of bumble bees.

#Quest4BeeNests is a new project we are launching to locate bumblebee nests across North America. We know very little about bumble bee nesting habitat and we need this information to better understand this critical aspect of bumblebee habitat to aid in their conservation. Video submissions will help researchers determine where different bumblebees prefer to nest so that habitat models can be developed.
