The recorded video of this meeting is unavailable.

Summary

Recent studies have highlighted declining abundance and diversity of insects. Threats including habitat loss, pesticide use, and climate change are all contributing to declines in insects such as pollinators.  We will talk about how climate change may affect pollinators and actions we can take to help increase climate resilience of pollinators in California.
