SAVE THE BEES!!
Transcript of SAVE THE BEES!!
Diversity at Risk
Save the bees!!
Playing your role as a bee
1.5-2 inches long
Bees live in colonies in a beehive typically in high trees or on the side of the house under the roof
Can see ultraviolet light
Eat honey, flower nectar, and some eat other insects

Bumble bee Taxonomy
By: Sandra Vo
Three representative Species
Yellow Jacket Bee
There are about 20,000 different species of bees in the world.
These animals are found in the following types of habitat temperate tropical terrestrial :
dune chaparral forest
bees typically live in hollow trees in beehives
bees live in all continents except Antarctica
the ideal habitat for bees to live in are heavily forested areas with tropical climates
phylogenic tree of Bees
There are 3 types of bees in each colony; Queen bee, the Worker bees and the Drone bees
Worker bees and the Queen bee are both female, but only the Queen bee can reproduce
the queen’s only job is to lay eggs
Worker bees clean the hive, collecting pollen and nectar to feed the colony and they take care of the offspring
All drones are male
Drone bees only job is to mate with the queen
Within the Hive
Most plants depend on bees to help pollinate them
Rainbow bee-eating birds & honey badgers main diet are bees
Bears eat honey
Every species depend on bees because they are essential the world’s food chain; without bees, plants would not be pollenated, resulting that there would be no oxygen produced, thus species dying out and becoming extinct
other species depend on bees
"If we die, we're taking you with us!"
Makeup & cosmetics
Honey nut cheerios
Honey comb cheerios
produce honey and aid the pollination process
how the organisms in this group are used by humans
Progressive decline in bees & pollination of flowers from bees are due to the rapid changes in global warming;
80% of the decline of bees are due to global warming
This strongly impacts bees because they are very sensitive to the dramatic increase in temperature and changes in the weather
don't use pesticides!
The deadly chemicals in pesticides intoxicate bees; affecting their ability to navigate back to their nest and furthermore, poisoning them to death
Reduced diversity of planets which has been found to reduce the immune system of the bee as they are exposed to the pollen
Flowers are becoming highly sensitive to air temperatures, sunshine, precipitation and wind because of global warming
This causes a reduction of diversity in plants
Reduced diversity of plants
The radiation caused by cell phones & other wireless communication contribute to the decline of bees because they confuse & interfere with their ability to navigate
Lost and confused, bees will then leave their hive and never return
Abuse honey harvesting by destroying bee nests and keeping them in harsh captivity
Some farm corporations mix multiple toxins which includes neonictinoids, fungicides, and various pesticides when treating the bees to take their honey resulting in rapid increase of honeybee deaths
Threats of the Bombus bees population is decreasing
Bombus Alpinus bees are vulnerable & are decreasing
Bombus Franklini bees are critically endangered and their pop. Is decreasing
Bee population is decreasing!! :'O
This is the BEST place to 'BEE'! Please help save me :(
ways you can help save bees:
“Save the Honeybee Foundation”
help raising honeybee awareness, developing and teaching holistic beekeeping methods, and providing pristine habitat for honeybees
Help create a better habitat for the bees; create a garden and plant flowers that can bloom for as long as possible to provide bees with nectar and so they can pollenate more plants *NOTE: when choosing your plants, select herbs, wild flowers*
STOP USING PESTICIDES!
Create nesting sites for bees –using old bird boxes or plant pot in a shady area
Buy organic honey from trusted sources; beekeepers who care for their bees
Eat organic; neonicotinoid and systemic pesticides are used in agriculture on food crops (these foods are being sold in supermarkets!)
Petitions to promote more ethical honeybee farming help stop the harsh ways beekeeper treat the bees
Effectiveness of Petitions:
Petitions to promote healthier bee habitats ensure safe & healthy, accessible nesting areas for bees
My action plan! :D
I will plant a bee-friendly garden with a variety of different types of sunflowers
take action & help save the bees!
