The Bees Needs

No bees, no pollination. No pollination, no plants. No plants, no animals, no food. Sounds more like a sci-fi movie than something real-life, but there may come a time when we might miss the buzz of honeybees. And at the rate bees are disappearing, the idea isn’t so far off. Colony collapse disorder, a phenomenon created by pesticides, introduced pathogens, viruses and perhaps GMO foods, leaves healthy and active hives dead and gone across the nation. Texas Discovery Gardens' new exhibit, Global Swarming: Reflection and Exploration of Colony Collapse Disorder, investigates the roles honeybees play in food production and where the world population will be without them. TDG partnered with Texas WAX/Dallas to provide visual elements to the exhibit. It opens Tuesday and runs through Monday, January 4, 2010. The cost of the exhibit is included in full garden admission.
