Bumblebee watchOur First Endangered Bee

The Rusty-Patched bumble bee, so-named because of a patch of reddish hairs on its abdomen, used to be one of the most common bumble bees throughout southern Ontario and Quebec. However, over the last couple of decades, it has virtually disappeared from the landscape. Wildlife Preservation Canada is on the look out for this elusive insect. It is our hope that we can successfully rear this bumble bee in captivity and then re-introduce it into the wild: a process that has had great success with for other species. You can help us with our search, sign up for bumblebeewatch.org today to learn how! Read more about our pollinator program.
