Walter Haefeker is a professional beekeeper in Bavaria, south of Munich (Germany). He serves on the board of directors of the German Professional Beekeepers Association and as President of the European Professional Beekeeping Association. In this capacity he has worked on the critical issues facing Beekeepers today including pesticides, GM-crops and intensive agricultural practices.
Serving as the President of the European Professional Bee Keepers Association, Walter helped lead the European beekeeping community's efforts to support the EU Commission's 2013 proposal to restrict the use of 3 neonicotinoids (clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiametoxam) for seed treatment, soil application (granulate) and foliar treatment on bee attractive plants and cereals.
Walter also helped initiate cooperation with the German Biogas Producers organization to replace corn with flowering plants to produce renewable energy and honey while promoting biodiversity and regenerating soil. He introduced a new international "bee friendly" label developed and owned by the beekeeping community, which is designed to mobilize consumer demand for certified bee-friendly production.
He is authored many articles, has made presentations and presented papers at scientific conferences dealing with the coexistence issues around GM-crops, and was featured in the 2010 documentary "Nicotine Bees.

Are GM crops killing our bees

Walter Haefeker is a man who is used to painting grim scenarios. He sits on the board of directors of the German Beekeepers Association (DBIB) and is vice president of the European Professional Beekeepers Association. And because griping is part of a lobbyist's trade, it is practically his professional duty to warn that "the very existence of beekeeping is at stake."
The problem, says Haefeker, has a number of causes, one being the varroa mite, introduced from Asia, and another is the widespread practice in agriculture of spraying wildflowers with herbicides and practicing monoculture. Another possible cause, according to Haefeker, is the controversial and growing use of genetic engineering in agriculture.
As far back as 2005, Haefeker ended an article he contributed to the journal Der Kritischer Agrarbericht (Critical Agricultural Report) with an Albert Einstein quote: "If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man."

Walter Haefeker, the German beekeeping official, speculates that "besides a number of other factors," the fact that genetically modified, insect-resistant plants are now used in 40 percent of cornfields in the United States could be playing a role. The figure is much lower in Germany -- only 0.06 percent -- and most of that occurs in the eastern states of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Brandenburg. Haefeker recently sent a researcher at the CCD Working Group some data from a bee study that he has long felt shows a possible connection between genetic engineering and diseases in bees.

During this Webinar, Walter speaks about critical issues facing bees today including diseases, pesticides, genetically modified crops and intensive agricultural practices. He shares his experience working in coordination with environ- mental NGOs and family farmers organizations towards more bee-friendly friendly production of food, textiles and energy. He discusses the successful "Fair Milk" campaign where Walter worked together with independent German dairy farmers to use bee friendly methods of feed production and land management.
Walter also provides insight into a new cooperation with the German Biogas Producers organization to replace corn with flowering plants to produce renewable energy and honey while promoting biodiversity and regenerating soil. Finally, Walter introduces a new international label developed and owned by the beekeeping community, which is designed to mobilize consumer demand for certified bee-friendly production.
