Like everyone else, I’ve been hearing about the disappearance of the bees for the last several years. The bees! The bees! What’s the deal with the bees? When you take a moment to check it out, it’s kind of a big deal and we do have a lot of the answers. It’s crazy how we can often be so slow to react to problems we can solve. It seems there are a combination of reasons for the crisis, but those directly involved are more concerned about their financial interests and spending money on campaigns saying, “It’s not us!” rather than admitting their part and working together to find solutions. I was inspired to write my own musical PSA after doing some research on Colony Collapse Disorder and the threats to the honey bees. You can download our song “Shakin’ Up The Pollen” and print out an informational page with ways we all can help the bees here.
