Where would we be without pollinators in our natural world?

How would this effect food production?

What are the environmental, social and economic impacts of this?

Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a phenomenon currently effecting honeybees. What is at hand appears to be a perfect storm created by pesticides, introduced pathogens, viruses and perhaps GMO foods. Research is ongoing in this critical area.

Panel members:
Brandon and Susan Pollard, Texas Honeybee Guild
Deanna Wood, Founder, Texas WAX/Dallas
Janet Reynolds, Texas Master Naturalist, member of Texas WAX/Dallas
