"No good sensible working bee listens to the advice of a bedbug on the subject of business." -Elbert Hubbard-I
An estimate of 30 percent of all plant life in North America is pollinated by bees. The dollar value is an even more staggering 16
Noopbillion dollars. Show some respect for our humble little friends. They are far busier than we will ever bee.
In the past 100 years we have lost 93% of our planet's seed diversity. John Coykendall, master gardener of Blackberry Farm, has dedicated his life to growing and preserving heirloom varieties of seeds to ensure irrecoverable losses are slowed. (blackberryfarm.com/farm/produce-gardens)

90% of Britain's bees are Solitary Bees. They are crucial pollinators, yet are little known or conserved. This film aims to change that.
This film showcases the fascinating behaviour and value of the UK's solitary bees. We follow a variety of different species through their struggles to find resources, avoid death and create new life.
Ideal for anyone who loves our bees and nature!
Our main aim is for this film to not only entertain, but to be used as a free educational resource. If you would like to use The Solitary Bees in an educational setting, please contact Team Candiru for a free HD download.
We have had the support of the National Trust, Natural England, Buglife, Environmental Justice Foundation, Nuturing-Nature, Campaign for the Solitary Bees, Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, Natural History Network, Wildlife Film-News, Bristol Zoo Gardens and Avon Gorge & Downs Wildlife Project and a huge thank you goes out to them for their advice and help with access and sponsorship.
So what's next for Team Candiru? We are making a film about the Bees of California. Please follow this link for more information! http://www.helpabee.org/ca-native-bee-documentary.html
