Bees are vital for the environment and our food systems. But human action has severely impacted bee populations around the world. Karen Rennich talks about why it’s critical we take action now, before it’s too late.

As the Project Manager of the Bee Informed Partnership and the APHIS National Survey, Karen Rennich is based out of the University of Maryland’s Entomology Department. She works closely with all members of the BIP team and other organizations throughout the U.S. and gets to tackle everything from data analysis to field work and all jobs in between to keep BIP’s goals in sight and to keep the project moving forward.
