Did you know that 75 – 90% of wild plants and global crops depend on animal pollination?! Bees, in particular, are among the greatest pollinators on earth! They support growth in trees, flowers, and other plants that serve as shelter and food for animals and humans alike.
There are over 20,000 known species of bees globally. In today’s Fun Facts, we will focus on the Honey Bee!
Sadly, bees are in trouble. There’s growing concern that the bee population around the world is declining. According to Friends of the Earth, this decline is caused by a combination of stresses – from loss of habitat and food sources to exposure to pesticides and the effects of climate breakdown.
We need to recognize the importance of bees to nature and to our lives. This is why it is so important to protect the species from extinction and do our part to save the bees!
