Bumble Bee Watch is a citizen science app that anyone can use to take pictures of bumble bees to help contribute to bumble bee science. The pictures are automatically accompanied by information about time and location, are then identified by bee experts. The images become part of a scientific library of information about what species of bees, and roughly how many, are found in different places — including many that scientists can’t easily get to — at various times of the year.
 

By using the app, you can help scientists learn where to find and protect rare bee species, what kinds of plants different bees are using for food at different times of year, and whether some bee species are declining with time and factors such as climate change.
