Today, April 26 marks the beginning of Stewardship Week. This week we are reminded of “our individual responsibilities to care for our natural resources.” The theme for 2020 is “Where Would We BEE Without Pollinators?” There are free school booklets, worksheets, and educator guides available for download.
If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.” ~Albert Einstein
So, basically, the Canadian Wildlife Federation figures we should tell government that we need a National Pollinator Recovery Action Plan. Well, if you are wondering what to do during your virtual activity while self-isolating, and social distancing for COVID-19, perhaps, signing a petition, and circulating an online petition will help out! Climate change is disrupting flower pollination.
“We are developing all sorts of technologies based on what we have learnt from birds, animals and soils. Pollination is worth billions. But it also highlights how nature is so interconnected.”~Tony Juniper
