To celebrate Endangered Species Week, WPC is putting the spotlight on endangered Canadian species who desperately need our help.
This spotlight is on the yellow-banded bumble bee, which is listed as Special Concern in Canada.
One of the best starting points in saving an endangered animal is to learn about what makes that animal special. We’ve pulled together some quick and easy ways for you to learn about the yellow-banded bumble bee.
1. Take a 5-minute break with Genevieve and Hayley and learn about the Native Pollinator Program:
2. Get your kids excited about endangered animals:
Download our kids activity sheets in full colour or black and white colouring sheets. Each of the six different sheets has facts about a different animal with a fun activity on the back where your kids can put their knowledge to the test.
3. Other ways you can help endangered animals like the yellow-banded bumble bee:
