Protect your bee!

“The bees are disappearing, disappearing…”. It’s not enough to say, we have to understand why and act accordingly.

On earth for over 80 million years, bees have always survived successive climatic upheavals.

So why the alarm today?

Because their mortality rate has risen from 5% in 1995 to 30% and a third of what we consume is produced thanks to pollination. They are a vital link in our food supply.

Protecting bees also means protecting people. It’s time to act!
