Friends of the Earth Hosts Awesome UK Bee Expert Dave Goulson in Toronto
Friends of the Earth Canada hosted Professor Dave Goulson in Toronto, Ontario, November 12-14. We asked Professor Goulson to share his insights with beekeepers, farmers, scientists and government officials on the challenge of saving bees and wild pollinators. What, we wonder, can Canadians learn from the European Union experience in banning neonicotinoid pesticides.
Watch the video of Dave Goulson, discussing how he first become involved in bees and neonicotinoids.
