About the BEE Protective Campaign
BEE Protective is the grassroots education campaign spearheaded by Beyond Pesticides and the Center for Food Safety to educate the public about pesticides and pollinators, support beekeepers, and help reverse declines in pollinator populations by creating habitat and pesticide free zones.

Film Background
With one in three bites of food pollinated by insects, our reliance on their services cannot be exaggerated. But unfortunately, honeybee populations have been in severe decline due to the indiscriminate application of pesticides in much of our nation’s agriculture. 

“Vanishing of the Bees” follows commercial beekeepers David Hackenberg and Dave Mendes as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts across the U.S. The film explores the struggles they face as the two friends plead their case on Capitol Hill and travel across the Pacific Ocean in the quest to protect their honeybees. Filming across the US, in Europe, Australia and Asia, this documentary examines the alarming disappearance of honeybees and the greater meaning it holds about the relationship between mankind and mother earth.
