BeeTV: Pesticides, Bees, and the Race to Curb Neonics
May 16 @ 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm UTC+0
What is the impact of chemical pesticides on bees and the environment, and what can we do to combat it?
Join us along with experts from the Natural Resources Defense Council, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Eckerd College Collegium of Natural Sciences for an in-depth look at pesticides’ role in bee and pollinator loss and their harmful effects on environmental and human health.
We then zoom in on the vital work being done to curb the use of neonicotinoid pesticides, and the implications of the Birds and Bees Protection Act, which recently passed the New York State Assembly on April 27, and is now in review in the New York Senate.
