Bees make a wonderful effort for our planet. They pollinate trees, plants and shrubs. Everything that is green in nature therefore relies upon their help. However, the number of wild bees in the world is dropping dramatically and has done so for a long time. Wild bees are threatened by agricultural conversion; fewer flower beds cause fewer dwellings for bees and poor food access; forest fires and artificial fertilizers that provide high grasses also cause a reduction to bee populations.
This is why together with Sunniva, the Environmental Agents, and Animasjonsdepartementet, we launched Home to Nature – a national effort where we encourage everyone to set up a hotel for the bees – so they have as many places as possible to live and reproduce. The goal of the campaign is to create a popular engagement where everyone, small and large, is helping to make the world a better place for the bees.
We have distributed 30,000 bee houses so that more people can create a home for bees and help increase the bee population.
