Saving Farms, Cities with Pollinator Conservation

Eric Lee Mader

The decline of honeybees in recent years has overshadowed a more pressing pollinator statistic–a large proportion of monarch butterflies, and nearly a quarter of wild bumble bees, are also in danger. With successful habitat restoration and diligent caregivers, these trends can be reversed. The Xerces Society’s Eric Lee-Mäder (Attracting Native Pollinators) will offer an overview of pollinator conservation efforts, in the keynote address for National Pollinator Week/Seattle Edition 2015. Like Marla Spivak’s engaging 2014 talk on saving wild bees, Lee-Mäder will offer a call to action to bring back the world’s pollinators. He’ll also share some positive benefits of restoring pollinator habits, from soil and water conservation to pest management and the overall health of our ecosystem.
