World Bee Day History
World Bee Day is an annual event that aims to raise awareness about the importance of bees in our ecosystems and food security. This day highlights the crucial role bees play in the pollination process, which is essential for the survival of countless plant species and the production of our food. This event presents an opportunity for South Africans to learn about the world of bees and contribute to their conservation.
Established in 2018 by the United Nations, World Bee Day is held on the birthday of Anton Janša, a pioneer of modern beekeeping in the 18th century. World Bee Day celebrates this history as well as emphasizing the need to protect bee habitats, supporting sustainable farming practices, and promoting biodiversity. In addition to their ecological value, bees also have social and cultural significance in various communities, with beekeeping offering a source of income and food security to many rural households in South Africa.
This celebration of bees takes place each year on the 20th of May. South Africans are encouraged to participate by planting bee-friendly gardens, supporting local beekeepers, advocating for the protection of bee habitats.
