Lovely…A Story About A Stingless Bee
Follow the journey of Lovely and discover the wonders and workings of our Australian native bees.
Melissa Ballantyne has been working with native bees only a relatively short time but her love and passion for the little bees has seen her create several native bee documentaries including one at Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia. When many Australians think of bees they think of the black and yellow striped variety. But there are other tiny warriors out there native to Australia. Now Melissa is on a mission to educate, inspire, excite and create awareness to the young and old about the importance and magic of Australian native bees.
