Clay Bolt became the first person to photograph and film a living Wallace’s Giant Bee – the world’s largest bee – when he and his team rediscovered it in Indonesia’s North Moluccas as part of Global Wildlife Conservation’s Lost species Campaign. First described in 1858 by the co-founder of the theory of evolution, Alfred Russel Wallace, it was only officially documented one other time – in 1981- and was feared to be extinct. Efforts are now underway by the Indonesian Science Ministry to protect the species from habitat loss and collection.
