Do Canadian's understand bee conservation?

Researchers Nyssa van Vierssen Trip, Victoria J. MacPhail, Sheila R. Colla, and Beatrice Olivastri have just published a paper in Conservation Science and Practice on the Canadian public's awareness of bee conservation. The article is titled Examining the public's awareness of bee (Hymenoptera: Apoidae: Anthophila) conservation in Canada. The research found that while Canadians love bees, they are less aware of the vast diversity of wild native bees and usually focus on the non-native domestic Western Honey Bee (Apis mellifera) experiencing threats such as pesticide use, habitat loss and disease.
