Danielle Lloyd-Prichard is a passionate educator about both honey bees and native bees. She wears many hats (veils), and is currently working as an education officer for NSW Department of Primary Industries at Tocal College. She has produced an AgGuide on Australian native bees and is also involved with the development and delivery of beekeeping-related training courses. In order to remain connected to university life and the excitement of experimentation, Danielle also works as a research officer at The Tom Farrell Institute for the Environment at the University of Newcastle. Her current project centres on using pollen from bee hives as an indicator of plant diversity, and pollinator forage species, within revegetated and natural bushland areas of an open cut mine in the Hunter Valley. She is the president of the Hunter Valley Amateur Beekeepers’ Association.
