Cultivating a species
Paige Trabucchi suited up and joined the movement everyone’s been buzzing about.
"“I am contributing to something much bigger than myself. The damage that people have done to the environment is shocking, and it’s great to see that there are passionate individuals out there who want to alter the destructive path that we are on.” "With the growing buzz around the impending extinction of bees, and what that means for life as we know it, many beekeepers have taken measures to grow the honey bee population. Trabucchi saw this firsthand during her internship with The Best Bees Company, a full-service beekeeping operation that manages hives in southern New England. She hopes to pursue a career in the environmental science field that allows her to be doing the type of meaningful work she craves. She says of her internship, “It was a really a great experience. The people at Best Bees Company are the most passionate, driven, people I have ever met. Every single person there wants to be there. It’s cool seeing that it’s possible to love your job.” Adding beekeeper to her resume helped her realize her passion to pursue a career in the environmental science field. As for what’s next for Trabucchi? She says, “Getting Endicott College a beehive,” is on the list.
