This Synthetic Apiary Could Help Save Dwindling Bee Populations
As honeybees become more threatened, scientists are creating manmade spaces for them to thrive in
The Mediated Matter group has created a Synthetic Apiary for bees as part of a MIT Media Lab project. For the first time in history, seven species of bees have been added to the Endangered Species List in the United States. Scientists are trying to create synthetic ways to help the bees thrive.
“The cultivation of bees, the education about their health, and the advancement of non-standard bee environments has become increasingly important for their survival, and for ours,” writes the Mediated Matter team.
