Professor Kremen on KQED Radio

Claire Kremen discusses, “Obama Dedicates Land, Money to Honey Bee Restoration” on NPR’s Forum with Michael Krasny at KQED radio. Click here to listen to the full podcast.

Seven million acres of bee habitat will be restored over the next five years in an effort by the federal government to reverse the decline of the United States’ honeybee population. The matter is urgent: beekeepers lost more than 40 percent of their colonies in 2014 according to a federal report. The plan also calls for investing more money in research. But some environmentalists say bolder action is needed, including restrictions on pesticides that studies have linked to honeybee colony collapse disorder. We’ll discuss President Obama’s plan as well as the impact the drought is having on the state’s bees.
