The Plight of native and wild bees

I became aware of the struggle of native and wild bees last years when I was looking into honey bees. They, I thought, were the ones in trouble. Because honey bees have people looking after them due to the money making value in them, they stand a greater chance of survival.

I didn’t realise just how many varieties of wild bees there are out there and how precarious their situation is.

You’ll find here and here, some good advice on how you can help give them a chance.

I entered this painting depicting their plight in the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts and Letters last Fall and it was one if the winners.
