Bees are a very important part of our ecological system. However, I have seen on Newsround that they are in decline. This is mainly due to the bad chemicals being used on crops. Bee populations have reduced by over 50% and wild honeybees are almost extinct in the UK!
We need to do more to protect ours bees (and other wildlife). No mater what you think of bugs they all serve a purpose on earth and without them our climate would suffer. We are their caretakers and we have failed our purpose, but it is not yet too late to take action...
- Create a bee friendly habitat.
- Buy honey from a caring bee keeper.
- Stop spraying nasty chemicals on plants.
