I’m Athena Rayne Anderson, the author of Pollinators Info (www.pollinators.info), and I recently earned my Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of Georgia. I completed my M.S. in Biology in 2004, and my B.A. in Biology in 2002. My doctoral research focused on bee foraging ecology and seasonal activity, but I had never considered studying bees, or pollinators, until 2006. I came across a job ad for a position studying native bees and doing educational outreach with farmers and the description sounded like more fun than anything I’d heard of before!
Call it an epiphany. I’ve since realized that pollinators and issues related to pollination are areas to which I could devote my life’s work. The more I learn, the more fascinated I am!
