Bees are in danger. Help GloryBee SAVE the BEE.

GloryBee SAVE the BEE

Why Should We SAVE the BEE?

Honey bees are the only insect intricately tied to our food supply. One-third of our diet is currently derived from plants that require pollination, and in the US, honey bees are responsible for 80% of agricultural pollination! Without the services of honey bees, there would be no almonds or many of the other healthy fruits and vegetables we take for granted. The widespread loss of honey bees in the last decade has been linked to pervasive pesticide use, parasites, loss of foraging habitat and poor nutrition. With annual population losses averaging 40% nationwide, action is needed now more than ever.

SAVE the BEE is inspiring positive change to ensure the future of honey bees.

Led by GloryBee, the SAVE the BEE Initiative is a partnership of researchers, beekeepers, businesses and consumers committed to protecting honey bee health by:

Increasing awareness of the role honey bees play in a healthy food supply Funding scientific research on the causes of declining bee populations and on solutions to enhance colony health Providing “best practices” education for farmers, gardeners and beekeepers Help us save the bee
