To highlight the beauty and wonder of pollinators, and share information about what you can do to protect these critically important creatures, Mountainkeeper created and produced an award-winning short film, Save the Pollinators. And we’re excited to release the film with an online screening and expert panel discussion on Wednesday, April 15 at 6pm.
The film’s director, Mountainkeeper’s own Kate Hagerman, will lead a panel of experts in an engaging live question and answer session. The panel includes Emily Putoff and Elena Sniezek from Hudson Valley Bee Habitats, honeybee experts Chris Layman of Fox Farm Apiaries and Chris Harp of HoneyBeeLives, and butterfly expert Maraleen Manos Jones.
Save the Pollinators not only highlights the importance of pollinators for human survival, but also offers tangible actions you can take, right now, to protect pollinators. Save the Pollinators features the efforts of local advocates, activists and farmers who have dedicated their lives to protecting pollinators.
Save The Pollinators has received numerous film festival awards, including the Gold Award for Best Social Issue Film in the Independent Shorts Awards, and has been Officially Selected for the Anaheim Film Festival, Shriver International Film Festival, Kansas City Film Festival, and the Irvine International Film Festival. Save the Pollinators, which speaks to the importance of advocating for the lands and wildlife we depend on each day, will be available on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
