We are raising funds to provide awareness on the worldwide bee epidemic. Bees are responsible for pollinating about 70 percent of the world’s most important agricultural crops. According to the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), more than $15 billion worth of crops are pollinated by bees each year just in the United States alone. Put another way, one third of the foods that Americans consume are dependent on pollination by the bees. The bees are dying at record numbers. Since 2006, North American migratory beekeepers have seen an annual 30 to 90 percent loss in their colonies. Similar losses were reported in Canada, Europe, Asia, Central and South America. The introduction of pesticides and herbicides as well as other cides has exacerbated the issue and has made the situation exponentially worse causing CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder). According to Dr. Albert Einstein, “If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live. No more bees, no more pollination…no more men.” The eradication of bees affects us more than we may think.
