Found this on Vimeo by a group wishing to make the plight of solitary bees better known. Please watch the video and find out about these fascinating – and crucial – insects.
90% of Britain’s bees are Solitary Bees. They are crucial pollinators, yet are little known or conserved. This film aims to change that.
This film showcases the fascinating behaviour and value of the UK’s solitary bees. We follow a variety of different species through their struggles to find resources, avoid death and create new life.
Ideal for anyone who loves our bees and nature!
Our main aim is for this film to not only entertain, but to be used as a free educational resource. If you would like to use The Solitary Bees in an educational setting, please contact Team Candiru for a free HD download.
We have had the support of the National Trust, Natural England, Buglife, Environmental Justice Foundation, Nuturing-Nature, Campaign for the Solitary Bees, Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, Natural History Network, Wildlife Film-News, Bristol Zoo Gardens and Avon Gorge & Downs Wildlife Project and a huge thank you goes out to them for their advice and help with access and sponsorship.
So what’s next for Team Candiru? We are making a film about the Bees of California. Please follow this link for more information!helpabee.org/ca-native-bee-documentary.html
