Did you know that there was such a thing as a Stingless Bee?

Meet Tetragonula carbonaria, an incredible and unique Australian…

In this latest episode of Back from the Brink, we look at how important Australian native bees are to our environment and our own existence. Stingless bees are small, shiny and black, and are found across much of South East Queensland, but they are suffering from the effects of land-clearing and in many places have declined significantly.

You could WIN! Enter our competition…

So what can you do to help rescue these important pollinators? Why not start by winning yourself a bee box or one of two copies of the best-selling ‘Australian Native Bee Book’ written by Dr Tim Heard! Simply take a moment to visit our Natura Pacific Facebook page or our Natura Education Facebook page to win the bee-box created by Kieran Richardt during the episode, or a best-selling book!
