Here's an urgent message from Bee Informed Partnership
This is an Urgent message from Bee Informed Partnership, we need your help!
A lot of you know that BIP’s annual National Colony Loss & Management Survey is live from April 1-30.
What a lot of you may NOT know is that despite the large amounts of Americans who are stuck at home, only a staggering 1/3rd of normal participating beekeepers have responded so far to the survey.
These are hard times to wrap our heads around and a lot of us are finding it harder to focus on things other than remembering to take a shower, making sure our teeth are brushed, and HOPEFULLY caring for our bees (one of my most welcomed distractions). While we are all still learning to navigate these new challenges, the BIP team is working hard to gather data on loss and management of honey bees from April 1, 2019 to April 1, 2020. In order to do that, we urgently need your help.
We’re writing to ask that all 2019 beekeepers visit beeinformed.org/take-survey and complete the 2019-2020 National Colony Loss & Management Survey!
BIP needs help raising awareness and encouraging participants to complete the survey! Please share this with your beekeeping clubs
