For a school project, I was supposed to choose an animal or insect that was endangered.
I decided to choose the honey bees.
Other classmates found my topic to be boring, but without the honey bees, we would have a lot of problems. For my project, I needed experience. So, I went to an actual beekeeping and honey place. My parents drove me there and it was quite interesting seeing all of the bees fly around, there were so many of them! The beekeeper was very nice and pointed everything out, and how the colonies work. He also explained to me why bee rescue and bee removal to honey farms is very important to protect and save the bees. I soaked all of this information up like a sponge, and I knew my project was going to come out great. The beekeeper was nice enough to give me and my parents a free honey sample, as being a honey farm with multiple honey hives, they often sold honey for sale. I took all of this knowledge back with me, and I made a Powerpoint on the importance of preserving our bees! I gave facts about how if we don’t protect bees, they could quickly become instinct and we would lose most of our plants, which would have a mass killing of all kinds of different animals, and our ecosystem would be far beyond repair. We would also have massive food loss just like the animals and we would suffer. Then at the end I went into detail about how honey bees aren’t the only ones needing saving, we need to focus more on bumble bee help and other species of bee that aren’t focused on as much. My project was a success and I got a 100.
