World Bee Day History
World Bee Day is a global event that brings awareness to the role bees play in sustaining our ecosystem and maintaining our food supply. As bee populations around the world decline, this observance highlights the importance of addressing the threats that these vital insects face. As a nation heavily reliant on agriculture, Australia recognises the importance of pollinators in supporting both food security and flourishing biodiversity. Observing World Bee Day offers Australians an opportunity to learn more about the unique circumstances of the native bee species and foster a deeper connection to the environment.
Established in 2018 by the United Nations, World Bee Day was proposed by Slovenia, a country rich in beekeeping tradition. This day was selected to mark the birth of Anton Janša, a Slovenian beekeeper regarded as a pioneer of modern beekeeping. World Bee Day serves to draw attention to the importance of preserving bees and other pollinators, the challenges they face, and the steps we can take to protect their habitats. Key events held during this time include educational workshops, exhibitions, and community bee-friendly planting initiatives.
Each year, World Bee Day is observed on May 20, providing an opportunity for Australians to celebrate native bees and other pollinators through local events. These events encourage the adoption of sustainable practices to provide pollinators with a safe environment, ensuring that bees continue to contribute to a healthier planet.
