Honeybee colonies are in decline worldwide. What is happening to our bees? And what is being done about it? Better yet, what can you do to make a difference? This talk will feature a quick summary of the importance of managed honey bee colonies and dig into the complex and interrelated root causes of their decline. I hope to give you hope and purpose by highlighting some of the ways we can all help the honey bees.
