Crops are only able to spread if the flowers they see from are pollinated. As bees fly from one flower to the next in search of nectar, they leave behind grains of pollen from other plants. This transference means that the male and the female parts of the flower are brought together, resulting in growth and the production of food.
Not only do bees play a huge role in creating the food we eat as humans, they also provide important nutrition to all kinds of other wild animals. Even the honey they make, in order to feed their own colonies during the winter, provides nutrition for other birds and insects.
Bees themselves are also part of the natural food chain and are an important source of food for many insects like spiders and dragonflies. Each creature plays a role in allowing our diverse ecosystem to flourish and so, it’s important that we protect each species from dying out!
