[World report] Biodiversity- Importance of bees

Please see the pictures below before reading my post further.


Some time ago, at a Community Screening by Emirates Environment Group, of which I am a student member, I had the chance to see the movie, "Queen of the sun what are the bees telling us?" It is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis. Taking us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive, this engaging and ultimately uplifting film weaves an unusual and dramatic story of the heartfelt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world. Together they reveal both the problems and the solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature. Juxtaposing the catastrophic disappearance of bees with the mysterious world of the beehive, Queen of the Sun  reveals both the problems and the solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature.


In 1923, Rudolf Steiner, a scientist, philosopher & social innovator, predicted that in 80 to 100 years honeybees would collapse. His prediction has come true with Colony Collapse Disorder where bees are disappearing in mass numbers from their hives with no clear explanation. In an alarming inquiry into the insights behind Steiner?s prediction Queen of The Sun examines the global bee crisis. On a pilgrimage around the world, 10,000 years of beekeeping is unveiled, highlighting how our historic and sacred relationship with bees has been lost due to highly mechanized industrial practices.

I would highly recommend all to see this movie. 

These pictures highlight the shortage of food crops that we will face if we donot protect the bee colonies from collapsing.
