Program Description:

Pollinatorpalooza continues with a spotlight on San Diego’s native bees!

San Diego is a global biodiversity hotspot. Among the many animals that are especially diverse in our region are native bees, which serve as the chief pollinators for most of our plant species. Come learn about how our diverse native bees live their lives (hint: not very much like the familiar honey bee!), the threats they are facing in this increasingly human-dominated world, and what YOU can do to help ecologists and conservation biologists protect the future of these beautiful and critically important members of our biological community.

James Hung is a pollination ecologist currently finishing his postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Toronto. He studied native bee diversity and conservation in San Diego’s endangered coastal sage scrub ecosystem for his PhD thesis at UC San Diego.
