World Bee Day History

World Bee Day seeks to raise awareness about the importance of bees. Bees are important insects that help preserve balance within ecosystems. They play an important role as they help pollinate flowers and agricultural plants. According to worldbeeday.org, 1/3 of all food produced in the world depends on pollination. Unfortunately, bee populations have been decreasing due to climate change, pollution, and intensive agriculture. This day aims to encourage new solutions to prevent bee populations from declining.

World Bee Day was established in 2017 by the UN General Assembly. It is observed annually on May 20th, the birthday of Anton Janša, a pioneer in modern beekeeping.
