Bees have a very special place on this Earth as far as the human race goes. They are responsible for pollinating more than eighty percent of the earth’s flowering plants and of these, they pollinate seventy of the 100 most important human crops. It is also interesting to note that thirty-three percent of every bite of food we consume is obtained from a plant that has been pollinated by a bee.
Pollinating 80 percent of the Earth’s flowering plants
Bees have produced honey for many millions of years and were mentioned in ancient writings. They play an important role in nourishing animal and insect habitats, and in addition, they also help to make the Earth a more beautiful place. It is therefore very important for us humans to take measures to save the bees.
In fact, we can begin our quest to preserve bees by providing environmental education for kids at the kindergarten stage and above. The more education we provide to young growing up kids, the more knowledge they will have about the ecology. Hopefully, they will soon grow up to become dedicated warriors whose mission is to save the bees.
