New Zealand has 28 species of native bee, 27 of them are endemic.

DOC’s Threatened Species Ambassador, Nicola Toki, helps us to understand that when it comes to NZ native bees, we’re talking solitary, small, usually black insects that generally mind their own ‘beesness’ and that do not make honey!
