[ It’s Our 1Thing for May…. ]

1ThingBees

For nearly 30 years, Conservation International (CI) has been protecting nature for the benefit of all. In 2016, Entercom Communications partnered with Conservation International to protect 150 acres of valuable habitat for bees and other pollinators.
Pollinators like bees and birds are responsible for about one in every three mouthfuls of food we eat — which makes their recent population collapse a major cause for concern. Without bees, yields of crops like almonds, apples and avocados would collapse, or possibly disappear altogether. In addition, a recent study found that because pollinators support certain crops that provide important nutrients to malnourished countries, a decline in pollinators could worsen global malnutrition.
The importance of bees means we should heed their recent dramatic declines. Although there are likely numerous causes of this collapse, protecting bees from known threats like pesticides is an essential step in maintaining our food security.
Conservation International’s success protecting nature around the world stems from the generous support of donors. Help ensure that flowers, plants and trees continue to provide food, medicine — and inspiration for all.
