Hawaiian Yellow-Faced Bee Project (1:55)
Partners: Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources and the University of Hawaii at Manoa


Staff of the Pacific Islands Fish and Wildlife Coastal Program, State of Hawaii Department of Forestry and Wildlife and the University of Hawaii at Manoa are working together to gather information on the habits and needs of one of Hawaii's endemic yellow-faced bees (Hylaeus anthracinus). There are only two populations of this species left on Oahu. Researchers are learning how they nest, what their behaviors are and what is limiting their survival so we can determine how best to recover this endangered species.
