The list on endangered species keeps increasing. As of 2019 Bees, are now officially categorized as endangered species. And this news couldn’t be any more dismal.
This news has been declared by the Earthwatch Institute, in a meeting of the Royal Geographical Society, based in London.
Based on recently conducted studies, it is being said that about 90% of the global bee population has disappeared over the years. This is mainly because of excessive use of pesticides and deforestation.
So why exactly are bees so important?
Bees may be tiny creatures but it is something we’ve all studied back in middle school science class, that they assist in the pollination process.
70% of the global agriculture depends on bees, because the pollination process is ideally a bee’s job.
They are also the only living species that do not carry any type of pathogen – bacteria or viruses. This was proven through a research conducted by Apiculture Entrepreneurship Center of the Universidad Mayor (CeapiMayor), and the Apiculture Corporation of Chile (Cach), with support from the Foundation for Agrarian Innovation (FIA).
Albert Einstein is known to have said back in his day that, if bees were to disappear then humans would merely have 4 years to live. If this doesn’t send chills down your spine I don’t know what will. Humans have brought the Earth to the brink where there is no room to question when we should start saving this planet.
The most obvious solution to the excessive use of pesticides is to research and switch to alternative natural methods.
There has been an increase in the number of animal rights activists doing their best to conserve all endangered species, including bees as of recent.
Actor Morgan Freeman is known to have said:
“There is a concerted effort for bringing bees back onto the planet… We do not realize that they are the foundation, I think, of the growth of the planet, the vegetation”
He also recently transformed his 124 acre land in Mississippi into a bee sanctuary.
