The Bees of Sussex

, 11:00am – 12:15pm
Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, Rye Harbour

To celebrate the launch of his new book ‘The Bees of Sussex’ James Power will give an illuminating talk exploring the life of bees in the county.

In every one of Sussex’s contrasting landscapes, we’re seeing wild bee populations shift and adapt against a background of decline. Through ten species – some gone, some back after time away, some here for the first time, and one that might never have been here at all – James Power gives us a snapshot of nature at a worrying point in time.

James has been immersed in nature conservation for over 30 years. He’s worked for the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, the National Trust, Defra, the National Parks department in Malawi, and of course the Sussex Wildlife Trust, where he headed up the land management team for eleven years. He has spent the last three years writing The Bees of Sussex, a deep dive into every one of the 229 species recorded here.

Location: Rye Harbour Discovery Centre, Rye Harbour, TN31 7FW
