This past summer, six UC Riverside scientists traveled more than 1,000 miles in northern Alaska in search of an elusive bumblebee. They want to better understand how the bee survives in this extreme environment and what impact climate change is having on it. The bee is the primary pollinator of about 80 plants threatened in the region.

Here at UC Riverside we put together two videos about the trip – a 41-second version (http://bit.ly/2d7ysU6) and a four-minute mini-documentary (http://bit.ly/2cuC4To). We also have an interactive road trip-style story in the Fall issue of UCR magazine, written by Sean Nealon: https://magazine.ucr.edu/5269.
