A Map for the Honey Bees!

Honey Bee Haven has created an interactive map showing where community members have created flourishing zones for bees to thrive. Bee (and pollinator) populations are taking a blow from current agricultural practices, specifically pesticides. You can take the pledge to create an environment in your own living space to benefit bees, then can upload your haven location to the map. Photos of your location can be uploaded as well!

The site states:

Bees pollinate a significant majority of the world’s food. In North America alone, honey bees pollinate nearly 95 kinds of fruits, including almonds, avocados, cranberries and apples. In fact, we can thank honey bees for one in three bites of food we eat.

Join others in taking part to protecting our pollinators!

  1. Reblogged this on urbansucculents and commented:
    This is amazing! Colony collapse disorder is a serious problem and the risk of losing such important pollinators puts the world’s food security at jeopardy. Please take the time to make areas in your city (or own garden!) bee friendly! I will be planting on the Sunshine Coast this weekend :)
