Current Conservation Efforts

Wildlife Preservation Canada (WPC) is a national organization using hands-on intervention and scientific approaches to save endangered species. Every spring, field biologists collect wild yellow-banded bumble bee queens for their Bumble Bee Recovery Program, to develop techniques for at-risk species reintroduction and recovery. You can help by submitting observations of Bombus terricola to provide new locations for targeting spring queen collection and surveys!
