A very compelling TED talk about the plight of the bees. I urge you to take the 16 minutes to listen to this very educational talk and to learn the very simple ways we each can make a difference to turn around the decline of this crucial genus.
As you may already know, Bees crucial to many crops are still dying at a worrisome rate:
Over the past few years, bee populations have been dying at a rate the U.S. government says is economically unsustainable. Honey bees pollinate plants that produce about a quarter of the food consumed by Americans, including apples, almonds, watermelons and beans, according to government reports.
Redditor ‘mmiu’ shared this lovely piece of advice:
“Summer is coming. If you see a bee on the floor still, it may not be dead, it may be exhausted and need of a drink. Melt some sugar in water to help it.”
