The State of Hawaii is considering a bill to recognize an official State microbe, the Nesiotobacter exalbescens. If HB2079 passes, Hawaii will be the first of the fifty states to acknowledge beneficial microbes. According to a report in the Hawaii Reporter, Dr. Stuart P. Donachie is the scientist who discovered the Nesiotobacter exalbescens microbe in 2000. He is a supporter of HB2079 because it will help reverse people’s “negative feelings about microbes.” In favor of friendly microbes, he said they “created and sustain our environment” and their “contributions to our health and the environment are often overlooked.”
