Bumblebee Conservation

August 15, 2010

More poop, more blaeberries, more bumblebees!

The Blue-eyed bear is enjoying her time in the Land of the Scots where some Scottish bees (Bumbus monticola) have shown her the fruiting blaeberry bushes. These berries are similar to the blueberries that B-E Bear loves. She’s eaten so many berries her eyes are bluer then ever. But, our intrepid bear is also giving something back to her new bee friends. Yes, her bear poop will help keep the bee habitat healthy and spread the seeds of the bleaberry creating new bee habitat. Ah! what a wonderful natural cycle.

It seems that the B-E has learned that certain Humans on this island are also  making an effort to maintain and spread bumblebee habitat. They are members of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust and the sisters do appreciate their work. Check out their offerings at http://www.bumblebeeconservation.org.
