Planet Of Pollinators

Season 7, Episode 1 of 4

All eyes on the pollinators, as we explore three of the most charismatic creatures to ever work their magic on our flowering plants and crops: Bees, Monarch Butterflies, and Hummingbirds. In Asheville, host Jennie Garlington explores the North Carolina Arboretum, to find all three in a wonderland of habitats designed to attract them. In Atlanta, Ashley and Lloyd Hardrick are Black beekeepers who share their love and knowledge of bees and bee products inside the city, in schools, and now all the way up to Maine. Monarch expert, Jeanne Megal, shows us the hidden world of "America's Butterfly," (including the story of her successful wing transplant!). In the Research Triangle area of NC, Susan Campbell bands hummingbirds to better understand their lives and survival skills.
