#WorldBeeDay raises awareness about our reliance on pollinators such as bees to maintain our ecosystem.

Unfortunately pollinators, such as butterflies, bats and hummingbirds, are increasingly under threat from human activities and #WorldBeeDay provides an opportunity to reflect on our collective responsibilities in helping our pollinator friends.

Wondering how you can bee part of the solution?

Some actions to help #SaveTheBees:

Plant a pollinator garden!
Buy products from sustainable agricultural practices
Leave a water bowl outside for bees
Avoid using pesticides, fungicides or herbicides in your gardens
Advocate for the bees and sustaining forest ecosystems
