When I started reading about the bees' decline on our planet, I knew I had to do something about it.
Our bees are dying not only due to the climate changes, but also because of toxic pesticides that are being used in the farming industry and also due to their habitat loss as our own population increases further every day.
"Why do we need bees?" you might ask. The answer to that question is a very simple one: SURVIVAL. It may not be easy to realise, as we try to avoid them as soon as we hear them buzzing around us, but in truth we are quite dependent on bees. 1/3 of our food comes from bee pollination. This means that 33% of the food that we put on our table comes the help of our little pollinators.
Therefore, to raise awareness of this situation, I - with an amazing group of people - created this set of photographs, which is also included as part of my "The Many Faces of Gaia" project.

I hope this blog has inspired you in helping our little buzzing friends.
