What would happen without bees?
We may lose all the plants that bees pollinate, all of the animals that eat those plants and so on up the food chain. Which means a world without bees could struggle to sustain the global human population of 7 billion.
In May, I re-released ‘Vanishing of Bees’ on UN World Bee Day. The song was released as a fundraiser for the David Suzuki Foundation’s Butterflyway Project. This project supports the protection and sustainment of key pollinator habitat and is very close to my heart. The protection of bee and pollinator habitat is crucial to the sustainment of Earth’s ecosystems and our human food systems.
All Bandcamp sales of this single will be donated to the David Suzuki Foundation and I’d love your support of this important campaign. Please share far and wide. The link is in my bio.
The David Suzuki Foundation launched the Butterflyway Project in 2017 to encourage schools, city agencies and home owners to plant bee and butterfly friendly plants in gardens and yards across Canada. https://davidsuzuki.org/take-
This was part of the ongoing work the foundation has done which also includes campaigning to ban neonicotinoid pesticides and to account for bees in urban planning. https://www.straight.com/news/
