The Bee-pocalypse: Another Scare Story the Media Got Wrong – Video

We’re all for raising awareness about our native bees as they are an important part of the environment and a great interest or hobby to be apart of, but any organisation that wants to “save the bees” or repopulate areas that have been effected by a natural disaster should start with some credible research and state which species they’re trying to save and what from. There’s no indication native stingless bees are declining in Australia. We only have a small amount of native bees that are actually endangered and they’re solitary bees listed below.

One of the biggest issues is the lack of research to show what we currently have or use to have in the past so there’s not much to measure from. Projects or programs to repopulate areas may not have any research to back them. The best thing to do is create or save the natural habitat.

Below is a 7 minute Youtube video about European Honey Bees.

“Have you heard? The honey bees are dying! At least, that’s what the media and big money- hungry environmental groups want you to (bee)lieve.” John Stossel.
