Shop the Muse: World Bee Day

by Shelby Smith


Today is World Bee Day! 🐝

Did you know that three out of four crops across the globe producing fruits, or seeds for use as human food depend on bees and other pollinators?

Pollinators, such as bees, butterflies, bats, and hummingbirds, are increasingly under threat from human activities. World Bee Day is a day to bring awareness to these threats that are pushing pollinator populations closer to extinction.

Here are a couple items from Shop the Muse that can help you teach your little ones about the importance of bees!
