Why are bees so important?
Little though they are, bees are some of the most important – and busiest – creatures on our planet. But our beautiful bees are sadly in decline, and it is our job to help protect them.
- Bees pollinate 80% of plants
- Bees have been producing honey for 100 million years
- 1 bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers per day
- 1 in 3 bites of food are derived from bee-pollinated plants
