In my search for the most passionate and dedicated bee conservationists, I came across the Short-haired bumblebee reintroduction project. The project manager, Nikki Gammans, was willing to get involved in The Bee Diaries – and proved to be an invaluable contributor. Nikki was able to provide me with a clear comprehension of a number of things including different bee species, the origin of the bee, the plight of the bee and what individuals can do to help.
But more than anything, she talked passionately about the Short-haired Bumblebee Project. With time constraints acting against me for the radio documentary, here you can listen to Dr Nikki Gammans and Professor Dave Goulson discussing the Short Haired Bumblebee Project as a flagship for conservation.
