Manage episode 270577874 series 2770067
We talk to Nikki Gammans, “Project Manager of the Short-Haired Bumblebee Project” for the Bumblebee Conservation Trust (BCT) during Bees' Needs Week in July. Nikki developed a passion for insects from a young age. She now helps to protect the humble bumblebee species which are under continued stress and strain from climate change and loss of habitat. She tells us about all the things we can do to support these charismatic and emblematic gentle giants. We hear about: bees that are incredible foragers and pollinators; bees that are under threat of extinction; bees that spend the night out, rough sleeping; and bees that sting Chris when he disturbs their nest! Please do check out the BCT website which has lots of information and ideas for helping bumblebees: www.bumblebeeconservation.org.
