Work#387 Bees & Life
The balance on our planet depends very much on such small animal as bees.
Bees are titled the most important being on earth because 70% of the world’s agriculture depends exclusively on bees. Without the hard work of bees’ pollinating, those plants would not be able to reproduce.
Already many years ago Albert Einstein expressed his concern : “If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live.”
Recent studies show a dramatic 90% decline in the bee population in the last few years. The main reasons for their extinction include deforestation, the use of pesticides, or lack of flowers.
Honey bees can visit up to 5,000 flowers in a single day.
« Show our tiny heroes some love by planting native flowers in your garden, say no to toxic pesticides and take it easy with weeding. Let's keep our ecosystems buzzing! »David Attenborough
Warning signs are made from bees. Bees without life were collected with help of API-Geneve and local bee keepers.
