We are pleased to share this exciting announcement from our friends at the Xerces Society.

Big news! Xerces Society has launched a new web site: BumbleBeeWatch.org. This site allows you to be directly involved in protecting bumble bees throughout North America. It will connect you to experts and other enthusiasts, and help build a comprehensive picture of where bumble bees are thriving and where they need help.

Rich Hatfield — the Xerces Society endangered species conservation biologist who coordinated creation of the website — said: “We have an amazing community of citizen scientists who have helped us follow a handful of bee species. This new web site will generate greater awareness and allow us to draw more people into this community.”

Bumble Bee Watch is a partnership between the Xerces Society, Wildlife Preservation Canada, the University of Ottawa, the Montreal Insectarium, the Natural History Museum in London, and BeeSpotter.
