Happy World Bee Day!

Today is World Bee Day, and at NORLA, we would like to celebrate by sharing a podcast and a TEDx talk with Anne Sverdrup-Thygeson, professor in conservation biology and author of the very interesting and amusing book Extraordinary Insects (original title: Insektenes planet).
The podcast offers an interview in English (second link, approx. 30 mins), and a reading from the book in German and Norwegian (first link, 44 mins).
Hear the podcast here.

We also recommend her TEDx talk “Insects Are Extraordinary. And They May Save Your Life”.
Hear it here (15 mins).
