Bees are of critical importance to temperate ecosystems and pollinator-dependent crops. In the last decade, there has been increased concern over global bee declines.  Unfortunately, basic information about native bees is lacking. In this presentation, I will highlight the remarkable   and underappreciated diversity of Manitoba's native bees, risks that bees face and steps we can take to mitigate bee declines.
