What can Bee Done? | Parker Stewart | TEDxSouthportElementarySchool


Parker Stewart explores the history and environmental impact of the honey bee population. Why are bees disappearing, why are they important and what can “Bee” done to save them.
As a young boy, I was always captivated by animals from all over the world. My passion was fueled further by my grandparents. I have one grandmother who began volunteering at the Sacramento Zoo in 1998 and continues to volunteer there and my other grandparents have a shop in Sacramento dedicated to Beekeeping and honey. I attended Humboldt State University and graduated with a degree in Environmental Studies. After college it was off to Moab, Utah where I worked as a seasonal park ranger for almost a year. Then I began working as a Naturalist at Whiskeytown Environmental School near Redding, California. Due to the Carr fire of 2018 I lost his job in Whiskeytown which led me to Effie Yeaw Nature Center. I have a passion for the conservation and preservation of wild spaces as well as educating the public about all things wilderness. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
