In 2017 the UN declared the 20th May as the World Bees Day. The main objective of this day is to take conscience on the importance of preserving bees and other pollinators for the maintenance of all humanity.

Bees play a really important role in terms of food security, sustainable agriculture, biodiversity, climate change, etc… The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that 71% of all species cultivated for human consumption depend on pollinators.

During the last years, bees have been threatened by a lack of natural habitats as well as by a higher exposure to chemical substances. As a consequence, the population of these pollinators have reduced considerably by a 20% mortality rate in Europe.
