The Oklahoma News Report turned its cameras on pollinators last month, interviewing a panel of Oklahoma experts on pollinator biology for National Pollinator Week.
In its June 25 episode, the OETA news show hosted a panel consisting of:
- Amy Seiger – State Soil Health Coordinator for the Oklahoma Conservation Commission
- Courtney Bir – Assistant Professor, Dept. of Agricultural Economics, OSU
- Jane Breckinridge – Director, Euchee Butterfly Farm & Co-Director of Tribal Environmental Action for Monarchs and Tribal Alliance for Pollinators
In the fifteen-minute segment, these three local specialists give a comprehensive overview of the state of pollinators in Oklahoma – their basic ecology, the pressures they face, and the things that individuals can do to help preserve and create habitat for these essential organisms.
The pollinator segment begins at approximately 35 minutes, 45 seconds into the program, and runs for about fifteen minutes.
