CANADA - The Honey Bee Health Coalition recently released its Bee Healthy Roadmap, a roadmap to improve honey bee health through collective action that will accomplish 'more than any one group can achieve on its own'.

The Coalition’s Bee Healthy Roadmap lays out specific priorities and actions that it will take to achieve a healthy population of honey bees, healthy populations of native and managed pollinators, productive agriculture systems and thriving ecosystems.

The Bee Healthy Roadmap identifies four priority areas that need immediate and consistent action from partners across the landscape.

These include improving Hive Management, Forage & Nutrition, Crop Pest Management, and Cross-Industry Education, Outreach and Coordination.

The Roadmap also provides a framework for ongoing collaboration inviting anyone with a vested interest in honey bee health to work together to achieve its vision of Healthy Honey Bees, Healthy People, Healthy Planet.
