"Bees are one of our major pollinators, sustaining food crops and biodiversity. One third of the food we eat is pollinated by bees, and many species of bees are declining worldwide. Planting even small spaces, like balconies, with wildflowers can help save bees or help plant public spaces such as along roadways or in your local park."
Read more about World Bee Day from the United Nations here. They point out that "three out of four crops across the globe producing fruits, or seeds for use as human food depend, at least in part, on bees and other pollinators."
Learn more about what you can do to help protect bees and other pollinators such as butterflies, hummingbirds, and bats, thus contributing to problem solving with regard to the world's food supply and slowing down or stopping the decline of biodiversity. As this year's theme says, "Bee engaged!"
