ENDANGERED SPECIES - Bees

This challenge closed about 6 years ago.

The Challenge

Bees, love them or hate them, they play a very important role in anyone’s life, as you all know bees are pollinators, meaning that they collect pollen from one plant and transfer it to another, unknowingly of course, by doing so they are allowing plants to reproduce thus producing seeds which in turn go on to grow into plants or trees. However scientist all over the planet have been reporting for some time now, that bees are dying off, some species have even become extinct. That’s the short version.

There are lots of different types of bee in Britain alone around 250 different species, including 24 bumblebees, the honeybee and numerous small solitary species. Two species have become extinct in recent decades, and others may soon follow them. This isn’t just a UK thing, this is worldwide.
