Bumble bee

Dave GoulsonDave Goulson is a professor of biology at the University of Sussex and the founder of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.

His first book, A Sting in the Tale (2013), looked at the decline of the short-haired bumblebee population in the UK. It has been followed by A Buzz in the Meadow (Jonathan Cape), which tells how Goulson transformed a rundown farm in France into a place where wild bees and other insects thrive.

Dave Goulson talks to Kim Hill about an unsuccessful project to repatriate short-haired bumblebees from New Zealand to the UK and other buzzy stuff.
