The team at Sussex are passionate about studying, understanding and conserving these fascinating insects!
Together we design experiments, analyse results, and with your help we can discover new ways of helping our garden bees and other pollinators. The Buzz Club newsletter will be guest-edited by a different member of the team each time, so you will get to know us all as everything progresses!
