    Environmental Awareness: Power Pollinators with "The Pollinator Queen"

    in Spirituality

    Environmental Awareness: Power Pollinators with "The Pollinator Queen", Noelle M. Meade-Izzi


    Noelle Meade-Izzi is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, speaker, award-winning graphic designer and renowned Natu-journalist. She captures contemporary, visual reality with her camera and combines wildlife anecdotes and facts to encourage every person's potential to connect with and preserve nature. Her passion for nature and wildlife photography stems from her research and study of the wisdom of the animal world, animal symbolism and animal totems. Through her work as a Natu-journalist, Noelle merges a form of nature photography with journalistic style to create imagery through both photos and colorful text to tell engaging stories about nature. Natu-journalism is similar to photojournalism in that both strive for timeliness, objectivity, and include a narrative to connect the viewer or reader at a cultural level.  Her book, The Hummingbird That Answered My Heart’s Calling, is a testament to the power of nature and its ability to teach, heal, and re-connect humans to their true human nature. This gift book is filled with over 40 full-color photographs and a custom designed book cover and interior pages.  Noelle’s commitment to nature goes well beyond her work as a Natu-journalist. She is leading a crusade to recognize and protect the four POWER POLLINATORS ---bees, birds, butterflies and bats. As the Pollinator Queen, she is a special advocate for the pollinators, offering advice on how to build a hummingbird-friendly backyard habitant, ways to “give back” to the bee nation, methods for protecting and supporting these essential creatures that are critical to our food chain.

    Are Neonicotinoids Destroying Food Sources For Pollinators?

    in Environment

    There is a great deal of concern that our honeybees do not have enough food to eat because of the amount of pesticides being used. However, most homeowners do not realize that their demand for pristine lawns and continuously flowering plants that have low to zero maintenance are a huge part of the problem. The lack of food not only effect honeybees but other pollinators such as butterflies. Are we sacrificing sources of food so that our yards can be free from the site of plants such as clover, and dandelions, etc? Even roadside maintenance poses an issue as wildflowers and other beneficial plants are mowed down for aesthetics. Is there anything we can really do to keep our yards looking nice and not take away food from pollinators?
    In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Dr. Vera Krischik about how we can help pollinators by practicing IPM (Integrated Pest Management) and take an active role in replenishing available food sources. Dr. Krischik is an Associate Professor in the Dept. of Entomology at the U of Minnesota and an Extension Specialist in Landscape Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Stay tuned!
