Join in conversation with Costa Georgiadis and Dan Smailes on a 'walk & talk' through a regional botanic garden focusing on some of the recent Sydney Native Bee Rescues relocated within.
Dan works with arborists, council workers, residents and volunteers to help rescue and relocate local stingless bee colonies in need (Tetragonula carbonaria). They relocate vulnerable nests, from inappropriate and risky situations, back into safe places of community, education, cultural or environmental significance. Dan will guide Costa through one such place, a regional botanical garden and Native Bee sanctuary. Hear stories about some of the hives and their colourful histories.
