What happens if bees go extinct

Albert Einstein is often credited with saying: “If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live.”

 

How important are bees and what will happen when they go extinct?

 

Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming conse- quences for our environment and our food supply. We rely on bees to pollinate everything from almonds to strawberries... Imagine no almonds, fewer apples and strawberries, less tomatoes and the list goes on...

 

What happens if the bees disappear? It’s simple: No bees, no food.

Bees are very important because they pollinate food crops. Pollination is where insects move pollen from one plant to another, fertilizing the plants so that they can produce fruits, vegetables, seeds and so on. If all the bees went extinct, it would destroy the delicate balance of the Earth’s ecosystem and affect global food supplies.

 

Simply we can’t live without bees.

 

We can all do our bit to support these brilliant bugs, gang! Why not plant flowers rich in nectar, which will help bees find the food they need?

 

Our mission is simple to contribute to this effort by supporting the struggle of many organizations that help bees.

 

Together, we can give bees a chance.

 

Let’s plant more pollinator—friendly plants!
