At Incanto Vallarta, with Talit Leon Mantecon and David Erne

Did you know that a large percentage of the food we consume each day
relies on pollination, mainly by honeybees? Avocado, squash, cucumbers, citrus fruit and so much more are completely dependent on bees. Yet, honeybees are disappearing globally at an alarming rate. Why? What can be done to save them? How are they populated?

Talit Leon Mantecon is a professional beekeeper with a deep knowledge
of the science of bees, particularly honeybees in Mexico. David Erne
is a retired attorney from Milwaukee who has been a hobby beekeeper for almost 40 years. Last year, the two of them traveled to Tepic to secure the 2 hives that have been installed at the Vallarta Botanical Garden.
