This documentary offers several practical solutions. These include: utilizing the biodiversity of plants, mass plantings of protein rich flowers, Queen bee mating yards, how to fight bee parasites and diseases without chemicals and antibiotics and finally, how beekeepers work successfully with productive and resistant Africanized bees. Saving the Life Keepers is a visual delight for the eyes and reveals how local citizens, farmers, small and large businesses as well as beekeepers can help protect and preserve bee populations throughout the world.
