After its birth in 1989, the world wide web had 50 million users in just 3 years. It took television 13 years and radio 18 years to reach the same number. Today, 40% of the world’s people are connected to the internet, so it is with great pleasure that we launch our new and improved Project Apis m. website! It still has all our Best Management Practices information for growers and beekeepers, and it’s also more organized and easier to look at! It now houses a comprehensive repository where you can read about the many research projects we have funded over the years (more than 100!).
If you have received research funding from PAm, please check out the summary of your project, and let us know if there are additional impacts, like publications or links to information that we can include to highlight your work! You can also find information about applying for funding there.
www.projectapism.org also has information about our forage programs, Seeds for Bees, and the Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund. Enrollment for both is happening now; take a look! Lastly, we are hiring, so check out those opportunities here!
Feel free to leave us comments or suggestions as you scroll, we appreciate hearing from you!
