    Will Task Force Protect Pollinators Or Chemical Industry?

    in Environment

    A Presidential Memorandum was issued requesting that all federal agencies work together to develop a cohesive plan for pollinator protection. It was stated, “The problem is serious and requires immediate attention to ensure the sustainability of our food production systems, avoid additional economic impact on the agricultural sector, and protect the health of the environment.” This was the memorandum issued last June. Bee populations continued declining as well as other pollinators such as the Monarch butterfly. On May 19th, it was announced that under the leadership of the U.S. EPA and USDA, the Task Force was releasing its Strategy, with 3 overarching goals: Reduce honey bee colony losses to economically sustainable levels; Increase monarch butterfly numbers to protect the annual migration; and Restore or enhance millions of acres of land for pollinators through combined public and private action.


    As we continue our special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, host June Stoyer and special guest co-host, Colorado beekeeper, Tom Theobald talk to Larissa Walker, the Pollinator Campaign Director and a policy analyst at the Center for Food Safety about this new strategy. Stay tuned!

    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!

    Sow and Dipity with Shelley Levis: All The Buzz About Bees (March 29, 2015)

    in Gardening

    Are we bringing home plants from the garden centre’s that are actually harming the bee’s? As we become more aware of our gardening practices, we know that pesticide use is bad and that biodiversity is good in our home gardens. People are incorporating more bee attracting plants rich with nectar and pollen into their gardens, providing bee homes and even starting hives of their own. But those insecticide treated plants we are buying may very well be the death of our friendly pollinators. In todays show we will discuss the issue behind Neonicotinoids and what we can do to make our gardens a safe haven for bee’s

    The Neonicotinoid View: Will New Strategy Protect Bees Or Industry?

    in Environment

    Last month, the White House announced a new strategy to protect pollinators. However, last year, President Obama issued a Presidential Memorandum directing an interagency Task Force to create a Strategy to Promote the Health of Honey Bees and Other Pollinators.  Has any progress been made? Beekeepers, bee advocates and concerned citizens are concerned that this is an effort to appease them while enabling industry to continue to sell neonicotinoids. 


    In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, hosts, June Stoyer and Colorado beekeeper, Tom Theobald will continue the discussion about this year's repetitive announcement from the White House to protect bees and review the efforts that have been made to raise awareness about neonicotinoids over the last decade. Stay tuned!.
