SAVE THE BEES - This is a subject near and dear to my heart. 💛 As a person who feels deeply about nature and science I have a growing concern for the declining bee population. Since the 1940s, honeybee colonies have decreased from 5 million to 2.5 million. Researchers say there could be many reasons for the decline: everything from parasites and bacteria to environmental stress, like a lack of pollen. 75% of the world’s food crop depends on at least one pollinator, such as the honeybee. They need us and we need them, it is a symbiotic relationship. We must nurture and care for them.
