Episode 32 – Bees As Biosensors – Can We Use Bees and Beekeepers To Monitor Biodiversity At Scale? – Max Rünzel, Hivetracks

In this episode, I speak to Max Runzel the cofounder and CEO of the company HiveTracks.

HiveTracks creates technology to help beekeepers manage their hives. Started back in 2010 at the intersection of computer science and beekeeping and now supports over 40,000 beekeepers across more than 150 countries.

That is cool on its own but what they are working on now is even cooler (well to me it is anyway) and that is using environmental data collected by bees and beekeepers to monitor biodiversity.
