Why are bees so important?
Bees are necessary for the pollination of edible crops as well as flowers. Three out of every four bites of food we consume relies on pollination!
Bees are amazing in many ways – their brains are sophisticated despite being equal in size to a grain of sugar.
They live everywhere except Antarctica, and they have hairy eyes! For more information about bees, visit the National Wildlife Foundation.
