In Andalusia there are around 600 different species of bees with a huge diversity of morphologies, behaviors and habits. However, wild bees remain great unknown despite the fact that in our latitudes they contribute to the pollination of 75 percent of wild and cultivated plants.

This exhibition highlights the importance of wild bees in biodiversity, as well as the dangers that threaten them, such as the introduction of exotic species or pesticides. Through twenty large-format photographs taken by Curro Molina, we invite you to discover the fascinating world of bees and their interactions with our environment.

The exhibition is developed by the Doñana Biological Station (EBD / CSIC) and has the collaboration of the universities of Seville and Almería, as well as the Autonomous University of Barcelona and the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA-UAB). In addition, the Junta de Andalucía, the Andalusian Network of Botanical Gardens, the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park and the Doñana National Park have participated.

Exhibition developed within the framework of the Aid for Scientific Research Teams Ecology and Conservation Biology "ABEJORROS" funded by the BBVA Foundation
