Pollinators in Peril - The Wisconsin Bumble Bee Brigade and Participatory Science

Project type

Documentary Short


May 2023


Sauk Prairie, Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Bumble Bee Brigade is coordinated by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. As a citizen-based monitoring project, that partners with volunteers from the public to conduct long-term monitoring of the state's native bumble bees.

In Wisconsin and throughout the world, many bumble bee species are in decline. Of the twenty bumble bee species that are found or have been found historically in Wisconsin, one is listed as federally endangered, seven are considered state species of greatest conservation need (SGCN), and an additional three are classified by the state as species with information needs (SIN).
