On December 20, 2017, the United Nations General Assembly adopted by consensus a resolution declaring 20 May as World Bee Day.

“This is just the beginning of the difficult process of the protection of bees and other pollinators. In order to be successful, we must bring on board the governments of all countries, the business community and civil society. Awareness of the vital importance of saving the bees must reach every individual. And we must do more than just talk – we must undertake concrete activities to increase care for bees and promote the development of beekeeping – everywhere, including in developing countries.”

This is connected to the importance of protecting our rural environment, from hedgerows to crop production, to improve biodiversity and bioabundance as discussed in the following video hosted by Martha Kearney, Journalist, BBC Broadcaster and beekeeper.

 

You might decide to find and support your local honey producer and/or reply to local consultations on our environment to help support the bees and other pollinators e.g. North Somerset Consultations on 'Your Neighbourhood - Parks & Open Spaces' and 'Rewilding'. See also, 'The honey and the ivy – why gardeners’ foe is the bees’ friend'.
