Sustainability Lecture: Saving Bumblebees

Københavns Universitet
2. maj 2018
Bumblebees are amongst the most important of wild pollinators, and concerningly, many bumblebees are in decline. Dave Goulson will discuss the drivers of these declines and highlight the many things we can all do to halt and reverse them to ensure a future for these vitally important insects. Perhaps, if we save a bee today, we can save the world tomorrow.

Dave Goulson is a Professor at the University of Sussex and the author of Bumblebees; Their Behaviour, Ecology and Conservation, A Sting in the Tale, and A Buzz in the Meadow. He has published more than 270 scientific articles on the ecology and conservation of bumblebees and other insects. Goulson founded the Bumblebee Conservation Trust in 2006, a charity which has grown to 10,000 members.

Carsten Rahbek, Professor in Macroecology , Director of Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate (CMEC) at the University of Copenhagen, moderated the talk.
