#WildPoshInterviews: New social media campaign featuring insights from WildPosh partners

26 Jun 2024

During the WildPosh kick-off meeting on 25 and 26 January 2024, project partners took part in interviews and shared more about their work. A big part of them were also involved in the recently concluded PoshBee project. During their interviews they share how their work in both projects connects, as well as what excites them most about WildPosh.

PoshBee set out to provide a holistic understanding of how chemicals affect health in honey bees, bumble bees, and solitary bees, and reveal how stressors interact to threaten bee health. WildPosh will continue this insightful work by investigating these effects on wild pollinators, such as butterflies, hoverflies and wild bee species, with the ultimate goal of protecting these small heroes who benefit the well-being of our planet.

The new social media campaign starts with Prof Mark Brown (Royal Holloway University of London), PoshBee project coordinator. In WildPosh he is involved in WP1: A monitoring scheme to determine sources and routes of pesticide exposure in Šµnvironmental compartments/matrices. 

The next interview is with Prof Denis Michez (UMONS), WildPosh project coordinator.
