The Awesome Bee

The awesome bee is dedicated to working toward efforts to saving this amazing insect before it is too late. Bees are disappearing rapidly. And not just the Honey Bees (who make the delicious honey) but all the bees. There are over 4,000 species of wild bees in North America alone, some are quite extraordinary, and honey bee is just one of them. 

Through pollination, bees help produce many of our specialty crops like almonds, berries, fruits and vegetables. 

Honey bees — wild and domestic — perform about 80 percent of all pollination worldwide. A single bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers each day.
