Did you know that 20th May was World Bee Day?
Bees and other pollinators, such as butterflies, bats and hummingbirds, are increasingly under threat from human activities.
In addition to being one of the major pollinators, thus ensuring food and food security, sustainable agriculture and biodiversity, bees significantly contribute to the mitigation of climate change and environmental conservation. In the long-term, the protection of bees and the beekeeping sector can help reduce poverty and hunger, as well as preserve a healthy environment and biodiversity. Scientific studies have proven that bees have become increasingly endangered. It is only through joint efforts that we can ensure the protection of bees and their habitats.
Mrs Hoskins and Eco Club have been learning about bees on World Bee Day.
They have made a lovely video for you all to watch and this has also been shared as part of our X-Pollo Nation project participation.
