When Olivia and Hamish see a smoky haze coming from their local park, they're ready to spring into action! But it's not a fire - it's a nest of Australian stingless bees that needs their help.

Join Olivia and Hamish as they learn about the bees in our backyards. From Blue-banded and Teddy Bear to Carpenter and Leaf-cutter bees, our two budding Bee Detectives discover how our native bees live, what they like to eat and the important work they do to pollinate plants.

Explore the wonders of Australia's native bees - and be inspired to become a Bee Detective, too. It's a real buzz!
