To raise awareness of the importance of pollinators, the threats they face and their contribution to sustainable development, the UN has designated May 20 as World Bee Day.
Bees and other pollinators, such as butterflies, bats and hummingbirds, are increasingly under threat from human activities.
Pollination is a fundamental process for the survival of our ecosystems. Nearly 90% of the world’s wild flowering plant species depend, entirely, or at least in part, on animal pollination, along with more than 75% of the world’s food crops and 35% of global agricultural land. Not only do pollinators contribute directly to food security, but they are key to conserving biodiversity.
Contributing to conserve the biodiversity TeknoDetaljer is sponsoring a beehive on site in cooperation with the company Bee Urban.
How can we do more?
- You could contribute by:
- planting a diverse set of native plants;
- avoiding pesticides in our gardens;
- protecting wild bee colonies;
- making a bee water fountain by leaving a water bowl outside.
