Why are bees important?

Bees and other pollinators are threatened by the effects of human activity. The crisis of wild pollinators and bees threatens global food and agriculture.

The main objective of World Bee Day is to protect bees and other pollinators so that they can make a significant contribution to solving the world’s food supply problems and ending hunger in developing countries.

We all depend on pollinators and for that reason, it is crucial to control their decline and halt the loss of biodiversity.

May 20 coincides with the anniversary of the birth of Anton Janša who, in the 18th century, pioneered modern beekeeping in his native Slovenia. Janša praised how hardworking the bees are and how little supervision they need for their work.

You, in your day-to-day life:

  • Grow a wide variety of native plants that bloom at different times of the year.
  • Buy unrefined honey from farmers in your area.
  • Purchase products from farmers who use sustainable agricultural practices.
  • Protects wild bee colonies.
  • Sponsor a beehive.
  • Leave a shallow bowl with clean water and stones or sticks for the bees to drink and not drown.
  • Help them maintain forest ecosystems.
  • Raise awareness about their situation, share this information in your circles and social networks. The decline in bee numbers affects us all!

  • Reserve some areas as natural habitat.
  • Create vegetative barriers.
  • Reduce or modify the use of pesticides.
  • Respect nesting sites.
  • Planting attractive crops around the field.
  • Promote participation, knowledge sharing and empowerment of rural and indigenous peoples and local communities.
  • Implement strategic measures, including economic incentives to promote change.
  • Increase collaboration between national and international organizations, academic institutions and research networks to manage, research and evaluate pollinators and pollination services.
