  • A hunt for the world's most elusive bees leads Dave Goulson from the Salisbury plains to the Sussex hedgerows, from Poland to Patagonia. Whether he is tracking great yellow bumblebees in the Hebrides or chasing orchid bees through the Ecuadorian jungle, Dave Goulson's wit, humour and deep love of nature make him the ideal travelling companion. But perhaps Bee Quest is most magical when Dave Goulson explores closer to home, amongst the secret places hidden right under our noses: the abandoned industrial estates where great crested newts roam; or the rewilded estate at Knepp Castle, where, with the aid of some hairy, bluebell-eating Tamworth pigs, nightingale song has been heard for the first time in generations.

    This utterly charming book will inspire you to think about the ways in which we are all responsible for the future of our world.
    One of the UK's most respected conservationists and the founder of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, Goulson's previous books - 'A Sting in The Tale' and 'A Buzz in the Meadow' have received excellent reviews
