PASS THE HONEY WAS FOUNDED TO EVOLVE APIARY PRACTICES AND ECOLOGICAL DIVERSITY BEYOND WHAT’S PERCEIVED POSSIBLE. TO CO-CREATE WITH BOTH BEES AND BEEKEEPERS
What exactly does that mean?
It means we promote pollinator health through research, habitat creation, education and outreach, and public-private partnerships. Enhancing and accelerating pollinator-health efforts, and building the support necessary to sustain improvements in pollinator health for generations.
It is our goal to enhance 7 million acres of land for pollinators over the next 15 years – conducting research, habitat creation, restoration and enhancement, policy development and implementation.
Why are we doing this?
Today, pollinators face a variety of challenges, including habitat loss due to development, altered land use patterns, and climate change, as well as exposure to pests, pathogens, pesticides, and other stressors. Researchers generally believe that honey bees, like many other pollinators, are adversely impacted by a number of stressors, acting individually and in concert with one another, including habitat loss from development and changes in land use, exposure to arthropod pests, pathogens, and pesticides, in addition to frequent, long-distance, transportation of hives.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Join us in our efforts…one honeycomb at a time.
