Albert Einstein once said that if the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. Although they may look small, bees eventually play a big role in our ecosystem.

In celebration of World Bee Day, which is celebrated every 20 May, we are encouraged to realize how important the role of bees and other pollinators are for our lives.

Originally, World Bee Day was approved by the United Nations in 2017. The date was chosen since it is the same day as the birthday of Anton Janša, a pioneer of beekeeping.

To celebrate World Bee Day, you can contribute to so many things, and one of them is obviously to learn more about bees.
