KALW Radio By Rose Aguilar and Malihe Razazan October 22, 2017
Listen to a great commentary on a recent study showing decline in flying insect populations and pollinator declines in general. Speaking are Dr. Neal Williams (UC Davis) and Dr. Dave Goulson (University of Sussex)
The Monday October 23, 2017 broadcast of Your Call: One Planet Series
Insects make up about two-thirds of all life on Earth, but since 2006, honey bees and other pollinators have experienced rapid population declines. New research has found that the flying insect population in nature reserves across Germany has plummeted by 75 percent in the past 25 years.
Scientists warn that this trend can lead to an ecological Armageddon. What is causing this? And what can be done to stop it? Join our next Our Planet series on Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
