Meetings Reflect Growing Public Interest in Honey Bee Health
The Almond Board of California had an active presence at four major events related to honey bee health this past April, reflecting increased interest by consumers and regulators in the decline of honey bees, monarch butterflies and other wild pollinator populations.
From the private sector to state and federal entities, the focus of the meetings is to discover what can be done to improve the well-being of honey bees and other pollinators. Given the importance of pollination services to the almond industry, as well as the industry’s long-standing focus on honey bee health research, Almond Board staff and leadership are actively involved in these meetings.
