Save the Bees

Many of the bees in New Zealand are introduced honeybees and bumblebees, brought here to pollinate crops. But amongst the 41 species found here, there are 28 little-known native bees.

Native bees are not big travellers and so need flowers close by to collect pollen to feed their larvae.

They play an especially important role in many of our ecosystems because they are among the most critical and effective pollinators of native plants, including mānuka, kānuka and pohutukawa.

In comparison to New Zealand, Australia has over 1,500 native bees species.
