Pesticides have killed 500,000,000 bees in Brazil within 3 months.

Woohoo

More than half a billion bees dropped dead in Brazil within just three months, according to Bloomberg. Researchers say the main cause of death is pesticides, which could end up effecting more than the bees.

As some of the most integral pollinators in nature, bees contribute to the reproduction of various plants. About 75% of the world's crops depend on pollination by bees, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization(FAO) reports.

FAO has warned about the importance of protecting bees to ensure food security. With 500 million dead in Brazil, the future of food has come into question.

I wish this was just a local problem, but this affects the whole planet. Ecosystems know no border. We should feel bad for humankind altogether.

Right now the amazon forest is burning and the smoke is traveling miles and miles across the country. It’s insane. We need international intervention tbh :ohno:

In Europe, Bee declines in population is far less dramatic than in other parts of the world...

 

I wonder if it has something to do with the fact that they are the most environmentally contious continent on earth and ban a lot of harmful stuff...

 

The world needs to take notes including my own Country :coffee:
