PROGRAMS UNDERWAY INCLUDE
The Bee Understanding Project:
We asked beekeepers, growers, entomologists, and crop advisors to swap jobs and look for ways they could work better together. Their experience was captured on film, so you can watch and see what they’re doing differently.
Spreading the word about bee health:
The Coalition has created a variety of materials and communication tools aimed at beekeepers and growers to better understand the plight and importance of honey bees and what they can do to improve honey bee health. The Coalition shares this information at annual agriculture, conservation, and beekeeping conference trade shows.
HBHC submitted a proposal to the Council for Agricultural Science and Technology (CAST) encouraging CAST to produce a paper summarizing the latest science related to declines in bee health. The paper, released in June 2017, discusses methods used to document colony losses, recommendations for research, and suggestions for all stakeholders to engage in helping to restore healthy populations of honey bees and other pollinators.
