PhD in animal cognition Dana Church’s GOOD INTENTIONS: HOW “SAVING THE BEES” IS CAUSING AN ECOLOGICAL DISASTER has sold to Kenneth Whyte at Sutherland House by The Rights Factory agent Stacey Kondla.
This book explores misunderstandings about honey bees, showing how “save the bees” campaigns are creating large profits for companies while killing biodiversity, and suggesting how individuals and organizations can redirect their efforts and what “saving the bees” should look like, ultimately changing how we think about beekeeping and helping guide us toward real and meaningful bee conservation.
"This book is important and will help us all do better in saving the bees,” says TRF agent Stacey Kondla. “Dana writes with great passion about how beekeeping honey bees is not the answer many think it is, and recommends ideas that will have a more solid and positive impact on native bee populations and other important pollinators."
GOOD INTENTIONS: HOW “SAVING THE BEES” IS CAUSING AN ECOLOGICAL DISASTER is set for publication in fall 2024.
