The Humble Bumblebee (and friends)

Why we all need to make a beeline to our buzzing friends,
who are pivotal to the future of our planet.

The bee population (bumblebees and the
25,000 other recorded species that exist),
have been too regularly dismissed in the past
as simply the overseers of pollination… and
of course useful if you want to spread a bit of
honey on your toast.

Yet the reliance both we and the wider
environment have on bees moves them straight
to the upper echelons of some of the planet’s
most valuable entities.

Consider that at least 30% of the world’s crops
and 90% of all plants require cross-pollination
to spread and thrive, and suddenly our
perception of bees takes a di erent slant.
