Help Save Nests of Stingless Bees

Aussie Bee Homepage > Bee Tracker Website

Landclearing and urban development lead to the loss of hundreds of stingless bee nests each year. You can help protect these bees by using a new online database recently developed by Megan Halcroft of the University of Western Sydney.

Do you know the location of any stingless bee nests in your local bushland?

If you have a GPS unit, you can record these nests on this new database.

By combining the local knowledge of enthusiasts Australia wide, this database will build up a picture of the distribution of our native bee species right across the Australian continent!

This information will be used to help protect and conserve stingless bee nests by:

-- informing local authorities of endangered nests located in land clearing areas; and

-- allowing conservationists to monitor the growth and decline of our nest populations.

The precise locations of individual nests will ONLY be visible to the person who entered the information and to authorised personnel from Megan's Bees Business Tracker website. So people wishing to poach nests will not be able to use the website to find individual nests.

Please support this new venture and help us learn about the distribution and abundance of our precious stingless bee species right across Australia.

To check out Megan Halcroft's new Bees Business Tracker website, please visit: tracker1.beesbusiness.com.au

If you have any problems registering on this website, please send an email to Megan and she will help you sort it out: megan@beesbusiness.com.au
