The United Nations, aware that the protection and improvement of the human environment is a major issue, which in turn affects the well-being of peoples and economic development throughout the world, designated June as World Environment Month.
It provides an opportunity to broaden the basis for an enlightened opinion and responsible conduct amongst the populace. This is required at all levels, whether it is investors, corporate entities, communities, or government.
The theme of World Environment Day this year is “Ecosystem Restoration”. Ecosystem Restoration is about the recovery of ecosystems that have been degraded by activities like pollution and deforestation. These actions have also negatively impacted honeybees.
Beekeepers worldwide have been focusing on finding ways to restore, support and enhance the role of pollinators. Pollination is a fundamental process for the survival of our ecosystems. Therefore, it is crucial to monitor pollinators’ decline and halt the loss of biodiversity.
In recognition of the above, the National Conservation Commission (NCC) will be facilitating beekeeping classes to the public, commencing June 12, 2021, in an effort to increase understanding of these challenges and demonstrate that these little insects are critical to our existence. They are truly UNBEELIEVABLE!!!
The N.C.C. invites every citizen to focus their attention on the increasingly urgent need to restore the earth’s ecosystems. Not only on June 5th. Not only during the month of June. We challenge you to make the necessary mental and lifestyle changes for your benefit and the benefit of your fellow man.
