The recent studies show a dramatic decline of the bees number as almost 90% of the their population disappeared in the last few years. The uncontrolled use of pesticides, deforestation or lack of flowers are the main reasons of their extinction.
However, why would such a little being be named the most important creature on Earth. Well, the answer is actually more simple than you ever thought. 70 % of the world’s agriculture depends exclusively on bees. Needless to mention the pollination is the bees’ job, although the plants would not be able to reproduce, therefore the fauna would have been gone in a very short time. More than that, a study conducted by the Apiculture Entrepreneurship Center of the Universidad Mayor (CeapiMayor) and the Apiculture Corporation of Chile (Cach) with the support of the Foundation for Agrarian Innovation (FIA) concluded that the bees are the only living being who does not carry any type of pathogen.
After all, the Albert Einstein’s say about bees has never been more true. “If the bees disappear, humans would have 4 years to live,” the famous physicist said.
Since the bees importance is crucial in our planet’s ecosystems and they’ve also been declared an endangered species, we really need to be as careful as possible on the matter. And we need to act quickly as we still have some solutions.
Therefore, in order to protect these hard-worker creatures we should immediately prohibit the use of pesticides, promote completely natural agricultural alternatives and we should monitorize carefully their health and welfare.
Lately people started to realize the importance of the bees and many animal rights groups are trying their best for the conservation of the species. Many celebrities have also joined the cause. And maybe the most wonderful example is Morgan Freeman. Recently the Hollywood star transformed his huge 124-acres land in Mississippi, into a bee sanctuary, in order to protect the species.
“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,” Morgan Freeman said in an interview.
The bees have been declared the most important living beings on this planet, the Earthwatch Institute concluded in the last meeting of the Royal Geographical Society of London. However, according to wildlife experts and scientists, the bees have joined the endangered species long list.
