Renowned entomologist and author of award-winning The Australian Native Bee Book, Tim Heard will partake in a live panel discussion in Eumundi about keeping bees and a possible future without them.

The evening will feature three panelists including author Tim Heard along with ecologist and native bee expert, Tobias Smith and local beekeeper and crop consultant, Chris Fuller.

“Keeping native stingless bees is a hot topic in Australia for commercial, environmental and recreational reasons,” says Tim.

“You can do something about the decline of pollinators by conserving native bees and this is what this event aims to help people do.”

An Evening with Australian Native Bees will explain the current situation in global crop pollination and the role these fascinating insects can play in addressing it.

Speakers will explain the two types of Australian native bees, solitary and social bees, and introduce a working hive.

A live panel discussion will address local initiatives with managing native bees for pollination and audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions of the panel.
