“We need bees for the future of our cities and urban living,” Noah Wilson-Rich said at TEDxBoston.  Wilson-Rich completed his Ph.D. in honeybee health in 2005. In 2006, honeybees started disappearing.  “We don’t even find dead bodies, and it’s bizarre. Researchers still do not know what’s causing it,” says Wilson-Rich.  We’ve been hearing about the disappearance of bees for some time, but Wilson-Rich is bringing a new perspective to the table.  Cities need bees, and bees need cities.
