The Problem

Overpopulation leading to Habitat Destruction which is an activity done by humans negatively impacting the animals Specific Scenario: Increase in population is causing people to need land for homes and factories which is getting rid of the wildflowers, which is needed by honeybees for their food killing honeybees. Increase in population has also increased demand for bee pollinated crops by 300% Humans will lose their food if bees die. Helping with Habitat destruction for bees helps both bees and humans. It is a mutual interaction.

Our Plan

Increase wildflowers along highways in Ohio and helping with the Highway Bee Act of America. We would like to design a drone to disperse seeds along the highway land with more precision and with the right weather conditions. We are getting expert advice from Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and landscape architects.
