Scientists at UQ are buzzing about a new citizen science project investigating some of Australia’s native bee species in our own backyards. Dr Gurion Ang and Dr Tobias Smith from UQ’s School of Biological Sciences are calling on citizen beekeepers to help observe native stingless bees, to better understand them and how their colonies reproduce.

Join UQ's citizen science project and help observe stingless bees and collect data on how these bee colonies reproduce.
