For my birthday this year, I'm asking for donations for Pollinator Partnership. Bees are vital to the health of our ecosystem, and yet they are dying by the billions. Due to floral diversity decreasing, and limited seasonal availability of flowering plants caused by climate change , the honey bees source of nutrition is dwindling.
The use of certain pesticides is also harming to colonies, as they are lethal to bees and can reduce the survival chance of larvae, and even decrease the life-span of adult bees.
Given that 90% of plant species rely on pollination, the vanishing of honey bees would be detrimental to the world's food and raw material supply.
