EXAMPLES OF HOW YOUR CONTRIBUTION HELPS EARTHWATCH MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE:
YOU SUPPORT VITAL RESEARCH AND CONSERVATION ACTIVITIES
It is essential to understand the alarming declines in Honeybee populations across the globe. There are significant gaps in our knowledge of normal bee behaviour, posing a challenge for scientists trying to prevent colony collapse. Your support allows us to involve many people in real environmental science to understand the honey bee and help protect them.
YOU ENABLE OUR CITIZEN SCIENCE PROGRAMS
We can establish an innovative “Bees with Backpacks” program, where citizen scientists work directly with researchers to place tiny radio-frequency identification (RFID) sensor tags on the bees recording spatial and temporal information about bee behaviours and deviations from the norm at Earthwatch ‘Scientist for a Day’ workshops.
YOU ARE PART OF THE SOLUTION
By donating to our appeal, you help us to engage people to take everyday actions that help pollinators thrive in the hive, and empower them to positively change their attitudes and behaviours.
