Austin's Bee Czar, Walter Schumacher, runs the CTBR (which operates under the nonprofit American Honey Bee Protection Agency) and gives honey bees a fighting chance through humane rescue and relocation. The king bee and his colony of workers give the extracted bees love and sanctuary, facilitate harvests of honey and bee pollen to make super sweet local products, and offer public education on the plight of the honey bees. Naturally, in the unnatural world of mass honey bee deaths and disappearances, our hometown hive has a viable, tattooed alternative to extermination. Rescuing honey bees, Central Texans (“emergencies take precedence!"), and the ecological balance of the planet are just all in a day's work for Central Texas Bee Rescue.
