Bees are the canary in the coal mine, showing us that the toxic way we grow our food isn’t working. Bees pollinate around 75% of food crops, including fruits, nuts, and vegetables. Without bees, we would run short of many of the food crops we rely on. There are many organizations working to save bees from mass extinction including:
