In a recent debate in London, the Earthwatch Institute argued that bees are one of the most important, if not the most important, living beings on the globe.
The institute’s conclusion is that bees are on the verge of extinction, and we desperately need them.
Bee stings are painful, but we will experience even worse if bees become extinct.
According to the most recent study, up to 90% of the world’s bees have vanished. The causes of this issue varies by country, but the most important universal causes are major deforestation, a shortage of flowers, soil shifts, the usage of unregulated pesticides, and a lack of healthy nesting sites.
Five scientists spoke to the public about their efforts to save bees, monkeys, flies, fungi, and plankton. Since it is difficult to save all five animals at the same time, it has been agreed to vote on what they believe to be the most endangered.
Dr. George McGavin discussed how bees are essential to the survival of a quarter-million flowering plant species. That several plants are critical to global agriculture. And if there were no bees, they would lose a number of flowering plants, as well as several other types of fruits and vegetables.
The intensified use of insecticides is one of the primary causes of bee extinction.
Bee pollination allows plants to reproduce, which provides more food for many species. Many of the fruit and vegetables will be very costly and unavailable in a world without bees.
A vast number of drugs used by humans on a regular basis are made possible by flowering plants that are now pollinated by bees.
Furthermore, honey provided by bees is a natural commodity with numerous health benefits. Honey may be used as a diet, a medicine, and to strengthen the skin.
The universe would be worthless and tragic if bees did not exist.
The bee is the only living organism that does not have any pathogen, whether it is a fungus, a virus, or a bacterial pathogen.
When people became more aware of the value and rewards of bees, they started to form animal welfare organizations to protect certain species on the verge of extinction. Many actors have started to attend these organizations.
We may defend bees in a variety of ways. As an example:
- Monitoring their wellbeing and doing research on their numbers
- Agriculture and natural replacements should be promoted.
- As well as a prohibition on the use of poisonous pesticides.
