We need your help! Because these animals are widely distributed the best way to keep track of them is with an army of volunteers across the country armed with cameras. With any luck, you might help us to find remnant populations of rare species before they go extinct. Participating in Bumble Bee Watch is simple and you can get started now by creating an account via the “sign in” tab at the top of the page.

Happy Pollinator Week! Please join us in celebrating pollinators by joining a local event, providing habitat for pollinators, or participating in a community science project like www.BumbleBeeWatch.org. Learn more about what you can do to support pollinators in the blog post below.We're kicking off #PollinatorWeek with easy-to-implement steps to support bees and other important pollinators.
Our Bring Back the Pollinators campaign is based on the fact that pollinators need only a few things, which anyone can provide in a remarkably small space: flowers from which to drink nectar and gather pollen, a place to lay eggs or build a nest, and freedom from pesticides.
Learn how to support pollinators, even in a small space, with these helpful tips!

Bumble Bee Watch is a citizen science project through the partnership of The Xerces Society, the University of Ottawa, Wildlife Preservation Canada, BeeSpotter, The Natural History Museum, London, and the Montreal Insectarium. Learn more about this project here.
Bumble Bee Watch is supported by a team of volunteer bumble bee experts that verify the identification of every sighting submitted. We couldn't do it without their help!
