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!.
