heard that bees are disappearing. But what is making bee colonies so
vulnerable? Photographer Anand Varma raised bees in his backyard — in
front of a camera — to get an up close view. This project, for National
Geographic, gives a lyrical glimpse into a beehive, and reveals one of
the biggest threats to its health, a mite that preys on baby bees in
their first 21 days of life.
With footage set to music from Rob Moose and the Magik*Magik Orchestra, Varma shows the problem ... and what's being done to solve it.
This talk was part of a session at TED2015 guest-curated by Pop-Up Magazine.
