Who doesn’t want to know more about bumble bees? Especially when you can learn from Syd Cannings! Syd describes himself as a “biologist, naturalist, bug- and bird lover, and inhabitant of the Yukon’s boreal woodlands”. He is also an author and co-author with his twin brother Richard Cannings of several respected books on BC nature.
Syd will tell us about the life history of our local big and bumbly bees, and describe which species are ‘beleaguered’ and the probable causes of their decline.
The photo shown here, taken by Syd Cannings, is a Western Bumble Bee. This species was once our most common bumble bee, but it is now listed as a Threatened species.
