Both domesticated honey bees and wild native bees are experiencing troubling populations declines due to habitat loss, pesticides and disease. That’s why Beesponsible® has teamed up with National Wildlife Federation to promote bee conservation.

David Mizejewski, National Wildlife Federation (NWF) naturalist and author of the award-winning how-to book “Attracting Birds, Butterflies and Other Backyard Wildlife,” joins Big Blend Radio's Garden Gossip show to talk about the role of bees in the ecosystem and how they support our agriculture. Hear how we can all take action to save bee populations across the country through NWF’s bee conservation #Don’tKillMyBuzz campaign with Beesponsible® and NWF’s Garden for Wildlife program that since 1973, has been educating and empowering people to turn their garden spaces into thriving habitat for birds, bees, butterflies and other wildlife.
