Notre équipe

Pilotée par une équipe d’experts et de personnes dévouées et passionnées, Bee City Canada se compose de chercheurs, d’éducateurs, d’apiculteurs, d’agriculteurs, d’écologistes, de responsables communautaires et d’un grand nombre d’individus engagés à travers tout le Canada. Nous nous efforçons d’aider les Canadienˑneˑs à mieux comprendre le lien fort qui nous unit aux pollinisateurs ainsi que le rôle étroit de ces derniers avec la santé de notre planète. Notre objectif est de montrer le chemin et d’encourager toutes les actions qu’il est possible d’entreprendre pour protéger les pollinisateurs.

Vicki has always believed that cities can be great homes for bees, and all pollinators; you just have to plant with the bees in mind. She completed her Ph.D. in urban pollinator ecology and has been working in conservation for over a decade. During this time she has had the opportunity to work in agriculture, policy, ecosystem restoration, and of course Bee Cities!
