WBSG Bumblebees working group

Aim of the working group

Building on the success of the BBSG, the WBSG aims to retain its structure and activities, under the lead of Paul Williams, within the wider WBSG. BBSG will therefore still be the acronym for the renamed “Bumble Bee Sub Group”. Reassessing bumble bee species, and assessing species for regions such as the Himalayas, will be part of the activities of the sub group.
