Saving the Honey Bees
Tony Leluk is on a crusade. He wants to help people understand what honey bees do for us and what we can do to restore their numbers and to protect them. Tony and his wife Diane own Little Beehive Farm in Holliston, Massachusetts. He travels all over New England to enlighten people on the importance of honey bees to pollination.
