Today is World Bee Day. Those of us who have a little patch of greenery or a balcony garden with flowering plants, often come across these little insects buzzing around but do we know if bees were not there the planet’s ecosystem would fall apart and there would be no crop breeding. On World Bee Day, let us celebrate these tiny creatures and spread awareness about their role as the biggest pollinators. World Bee Day is an opportunuty to make people aware of the threats bees face. In December 2017, the United Nations declared the celebration of World Bee Day.

The theme of World Bee Day 2021 is: Bee Engaged – Build Back Better for Bees.
