Did you know that one in three bites of food on your table is there because of bees? In 2010, per a World Atlas report, honey bees contributed to the pollination of $19 billion worth of agricultural crops. That is why the decimation of honey bees is a critical threat to the world’s food production capabilities. Midwest Conservation Dogs is striving to "BEE" a change in the Midwest! Joining us to discuss how professionally trained dogs are helping the honey bee population are Laura Holder and Amy Wagnitz from Midwest Conservation Dogs.
