About Short Film Showcase:
The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.

Everyone has heard about bee declines, but with so much attention focused on domesticated honeybees, someone has to speak up for the 4,000 species of native bees in North America. Natural history photographer Clay Bolt is on a multi-year quest to tell the stories of our native bees, and one elusive species – the Rusty-patched Bumble Bee – has become his ‘white whale.’ Produced by Day's Edge Productions and Clay Bolt in partnership with Xerces Society and Endangered Species Chocolate.
On January 10, 2017, the rusty-patched bumble bee became the first bumble bee to be declared endangered in the U.S. Read more about it here: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/01/bumblebees-endangered-species-rusty-patched/
