(CBC) Ann Puddicombe has no formal scientific training, but she has become one of the top three contributors to Bumble Bee Watch in Canada. In addition to providing observations of bees that are rare, Puddicombe has even identified a bee that hadn’t been seen in other parts of Ontario in a decade.
(Twitter, Sheila Cola @SaveWildBees) “We are using trained dogs to find bumblebee nests because they are so dang hard to find, but important to find for conservation. Wish us luck!”
(OrilliaMatters.com) “Pollinators are everywhere; they don’t just stop at city limits. They’re all in our natural spaces, and we’ve got lots of natural spaces in and around the City of Orillia and Severn Township.”
