20 May is World Bee Day 🐝.
The number of bees, bumblebees and other pollinators is decreasing at an alarming rate due to human activity. Pollution, pesticides and climatechange are all factors that are reducing their number. Producing honey is just a fraction of what bees help us with. Up to 90% of the crops rely on insects to ensure pollination – the way a plant is able to conceive fruit.
