A Ghost in the Making

Over the last few years there has been a shift in the understanding of bees and_DSC0135 the ones that need protecting.  Until recently its been honey bees that get all the attention.  Many are quickly realizing the detrimental impact this is having on our environment.

Honey bees are not native nor actually belong here.  They also do not provide pollinating services for the majority of the crops we depend on.  In the meantime incredibly important species of native bees are becoming extinct.  If this trend continues the impact it would have could be catastrophic.

The short documentary below does a wonderful job of displaying the importance we all must begin to place on our native bees.  Thanks for taking the time to watch!
