University of Toronto Scarborough has beehives located on our Social Science Building rooftop. For more information about the bees on campus, check out our campus beekeeper, Tom Nolan on instagram @Hivetown .
Toronto is home to hundreds of species of bees along with a variety of other pollinators. In 2016, Toronto may become Canada’s first Bee City, growing and protecting the pollinator population.
Did you know: Bees along with birds, bats, beetles and butterflies pollinate approximately 30% of the world’s crop!
