It's time we celebrate this hardworking insect.

Bees play an essential role in our ecosystem. Along with other pollinators, they’re responsible for pollinating more than half of the world’s crops. As today marks World Bee Day, we celebrate the role these pollinators play in our lives. The day coincides with the birthday of Anton Janša, who pioneered modern beekeeping in the 1800s.
