To bee or not to bee that is the question!
Bees are not that different to us; they live in little colonies of a population of 30,000 to 60,000 bees and can therefore be compared to a city. Their little wings beat 11,400 times per minute, making the buzzing noise we all hear in the summer time. They are hard workers, visiting 4 million flowers and flying 4 times the distance around the world to produce 1 kg of the stuff that we and Winnie Pooh cannot get enough of. They pollinate 170,000 plant species, and without them, fruits and vegetables would hardly grow. Nor would you find lovely fields of flowers.
Without bees the world would look rather sad. To protect those intelligent and busy insects the Slovenian Beekeeper's Association has launched the WORLD BEE DAY. The WORLD BEE DAY initiative is supported by the Republic of Slovenia and backed by Apimondia, the beekeepers' umbrella association.
It is there to show the world that in recent years bees have been facing increasing threats and there has to be action to protect them. Without bees, there would be no food provided, no sustainable agriculture, no biodiversity, no climate change mitigation, and no healthy environment.
These are some things you can do to protect bees and their honey:
The impacts of COVID-19
