Guy Compliments Bee, Gets An Epic High Five In Return
It’s not often that you meet a bee as chill as this little guy, but they are definitely one insect that deserves our utmost respect. It sounds crazy, but without bees, a lot of important crops would cease to exist. Fruits, vegetables and the ever-important coffee all rely on the pollination of bees. In fact, bees contribute up to $15 billion dollars in crop value in the U.S. alone each year. It’s scary to think how our agricultural and economic systems would collapse without them.
While it’s true that bees have been dying at alarming rates, there are also many current efforts to save them. This year President Obama launched a Pollinator Health Task Force, while others have taken a more local approach. Sales of bee-keeping equipment have risen, but anyone can help bees by planting flowers, reviving weak ones with honey-water and avoiding needless killings. Bees are friends, not foes – and never was that demonstrated as clearly as it is in this video.
