Bee Informed

Bees have been pollinating the Earths plants for approximately 25 million years.

The health of pollinators, is directly linked to our nationโ€™s food security and the health and vitality of our ecosystems

Bees are responsible for 1 in 3 bites of food we eat, from almonds to tomatoes & strawberries

There are 20,000 species of bees worldwide, and more then 4,000 in the US alone

Since 2006, beekeepers have lost an average of 30% of their hives annually

While climate change has contributed to colony collapse, the leading driver of global bee decline is toxic "neonic" pesticides

Nearly all colonies of wild honeybees have died out in the US. Without beekeepers to care for them, honeybees would disappear completely in a couple of years. 

Increasing bee-friendly flower-rich habitats in farmlands, gardens and parks can provide forage for bees and other pollinators.

Bee Involved

Plant a pollinator-friendly garden

Buy local honey to support the beekeepers in your area. We now know chemicals used in agriculture hurt bee populations greatly. If you're concerned about the number of these chemicals used in agriculture, buy organic. Tell local and state government officials that you care about pollinator health every chance you get.
