CAMPAIGN: Advancing Sustainable Development Goals

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

Honey bees and other pollinators are essential for the reproduction of more than 85% of the world' flowering plants, and much of the food we eat.  As a result, these creatures are essential players in support of Sustainable Development Goals 2 (Zero Hunger) and 15 (Life on Land).  But they are under threat from such factors as land use changes, agriculture chemicals, large-scale monoculture and climate change. We celebrated the first-ever World Bee Day May 20th by producing this short video, and hope you will share it widely.  You can read more about the role of these important pollinators at https://bit.ly/2F2qHgb
