What is World Bee Day?

United Nation's World Bee Day is celebrated every year on the 20th May. Anton Jansa, a Slovenian pioneer in beekeeping and an expert on bees in general, was born this day in 1734. 🐝🐝

The main purpose of World Bee Day is to recognize the role bees and other pollinators play in our ecosystem. Each year a particular theme is chosen - 2024 focuses on 'Bee engaged with Youth' highlighting the importance of involving young people in beekeeping and conservation. 🐝🐞

It should be obvious to all that bees and other pollinators are under serious threat - πŸ˜”
over use of pesticides, intensive farming and a warming climate are all factors in their decline! πŸ™„
If bees and other pollinators continue to disappear many of our nutritious crops such as vegetables, fruits and nuts will be affected!

How can we help?

β€’ By growing a diverse range of native plants - preferrably flowering at different times of the year - bees need access to pollen all year round! 🌺🌸🌼
β€’ By making a water 'pit stop' for bees and other pollinators (check out our blog)
β€’ By raising awareness and sharing this vital information with others

These are just a few ways we can help to improve the environment for our bees! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜„
