Finding Honeybees - University of Georgia
Almost a third of global farm output relies on animal pollination, largely by honeybees. But do you remember the last time when you encountered honeybees around your place? (Honeybees are different from bumblebees!). Where are they? What is happening to honeybees? We are going to use Project Noah (http://www.projectnoah.org) to find animal pollinators and document the investigation process. Our ultimate goal is to find honeybees and understand their habitat. By contributing to this mission, you become citizen scientists and initiate an important step toward projecting honeybees.

1. Before your fieldwork, check the list of animal pollinators and the flowers they visit: http://www.fs.fed.us/wildflowers/pollinators/animals/index.shtml 2. Find out a place you want to observe animal pollinators. Can you spot any animal pollinators? What about bees? Try to spot at least one pollinator. 3. Once you spot pollinators, take a picture (s) and post it. 4. Do a little research about your observation. Edit your spotting and include as much information as possible including its name, where you found, features, its habitat, flowers they visit, and your references. 5. Finally read several of your classmates’ spottings. Post a comment on at least 2 spottings.
