What’s the Big Deal About Bees Anyways?
Bees are our primary pollinators, thus, guaranteeing food security, sustainable agriculture, and an eco-system. Bees significantly diminish climate change. Long term, the protection of bees and the beekeeping sector can help decrease poverty and hunger and preserve a healthy environment and eco-system.
Are Bees Endangered?
Scientific studies have proven that bees have become increasingly endangered. In Canada, the wild bee has been on the endangered list since 2010. That’s a pretty scary statistic since bees are one of the main reasons our food supply is abundant. Read more about the rusty-patched bumble bee here.
What Can You Do Help the Bees?
It is only through joint efforts that we can ensure the protection of bees and their habitats. Surprisingly, the above article also claims this from Sheila Colla of the Wildlife Preservation Canada pollinator program, “Cities are a refuge for wild bees because of the pesticides and insecticides for honey bees,” Colla said. “Cities are pesticide free and buffer against climate change because people plant and water flowers, but in recent years, more people bring honey bee hives into cities and they compete with wild bees. Experts say replacing beehives in cities with gardens full of native plants, especially ones that blossom in April and sending pictures of bees in the wild to research projects are some of the ways people can help.”National Post Article ‘It’s almost too late:’
We need the bees! Whether they are honey bees or wild bees – we won’t have food without them, or at the least, food will become scarce and debilitated. The crops need the bees to pollinate to preserve biodiversity.
