In response to the recent honeybee population declines, I have dedicated myself to the plight of the honeybee and focused on understanding bee behavior, history, and the bee’s relationship to humynkind. I have studied honeybee behaviour - namely nursing, feeding, guarding, and multi-sensory communication - and looked to it as a framework to spread awareness about the plight of the honeybee to other humyns. In the spirit of colony reproduction (a.k.a. swarming),  On Becoming a Human Honeybee  seeks to create intergenerational efforts to correct honeybee population decline and reconnect humyns with honeybees as their ancient symbiotes. As a result, I have become an active member in the broader gobal beekeeping community by conducting research on Honeybee Population Declines, co-developing university beekeeping programs, demonstrating the lost arts of beekeeping - such as “wild bee hunting” and apitherapy - and most importantly, by communicating with other humyns in multi-sensory forms about honeybees.
