What you'll do

Did you know there are more than 20,000 registered species of bees around the world? but when we think of bees we usually refer to one of them. We often hear humans are in danger due to the rapid loss of bees and the important role they play in the pollination of food crops. Protecting bees has become a mandatory and shared responsibility; But protecting something we know very little about is a complex challenge. Learning is essential to translate knowledge into actions for preservation. In this bee discovery you will learn about the stingless bees and the heroes who dedicate their lives to safeguarding these small insects.
