CAMPAIGN: Honey Bee Health

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

At the Saint Louis Zoo’s Annual Pollinator Dinner June 17, leaders of a new Honey Bee Health Coalition gathered to announce their plans for responding to declines in honey bee and pollinator health—a situation that puts worldwide food security at risk. The Honey Bee Health Coalition, which is facilitated by The Keystone Center, is a diverse coalition formed to promote collaborative solutions. For more information, please see The Keystone Center’s press release and the Honey Bee Health Coalition’s briefing slides and fact sheet.
