One group wants to protect agriculture, one bee hive at a time
By Hillary Epperson, Food Tank
The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation is promoting awareness for saving bees and other pollinators. Without bees to pollinate, agriculture and food production could be in danger, the group says.
Food Tank recently had the opportunity to ask The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation some questions about their efforts to conserve pollinators. Scott Black, Executive Director of The Xerces Society, highlights what is threatening pollinators, why they are vital to ecology and agriculture, and what is being done to support farmers and encourage conservation.
