I love technology and what it does and what it can mean, break down barriers and connecting up people. However without nature and the environment providing us with the right amount of oxygen and energy our technology and progression would be meaningless. When you think of a perfect society for the good of all what springs to mind? Some Utopian vision of your every demands being met? Having no money worries or lots of leisure time in n underpopulated perfect world?

I think on World bee day this is something to think about, here in nature you have a eusociality society where all members of that society play an important role and each doing what they do for the greater good of the hive. The male drone bees whose sole purpose is to mate with the queen, the reward for this is having your guts ripped out in mid air. The worker bees, female, all working to a schedule and not being able to leave the hive for food and water until after day 21. If any part of the hive breaks down then bees would struggle to exist.

“So it does not matter what industry you are in, or the daily stresses you have to deal with. Take time out and plant bee friendly plants to keep food pathways available to them”

I find this fascinating because this strict selfless society, where even the Queen may have to give birth to 1,000,000 bees so does her part, is extremely important to us and our life here on planet earth. I completed a degree in environmental science & studies because I wanted to learn more about the world we live in. To realise that pollinators (not just bees) are needed to pollinate 75% of the crops we eat, and that they are instrumental in pollinating crops that give us essential vitamins such as Vit C. Bees play a huge role in this, without bees our food supply would struggle.

So it does not matter what industry you are in, or the daily stresses you have to deal with. Take time out and plant bee friendly plants to keep food pathways available to them, to help increase the bee population and to do your part looking after these selfless societies that ironically are critical for our selfish society.
