Bees are under threat of extinction! Make an origami bee and contribute to raising awareness of the importance of bees as pollinators of many of the nutritious fruits, vegetables, and seeds we rely on.
May 20th is World Bee Day • September is National Honey Month in the USA.
Watch the video below to make your ORIGAMI BEE. When you fold the model, share a picture of your bee with us! (Read below how to share your picture. )
If not for the help of bees, imagine life without delicious fruits such as oranges, apples, blueberries, or cherries. Imagine a plate of chili missing that delicious bite of chili heat, or the absence of a fragrant and warm cup of coffee from the breakfast table.
In addition to producing delicious honey, bees pollinate at least one-third of the food we eat. The pollination of almonds and blueberries depends entirely on honey bees.
Pollination is the transfer of pollen grains from the male anther of a flower to the female stigma, which enables fertilization.
When a bee collects nectar and pollen from the flower of a plant, some pollen from male flowers stick to the hairs of its body. When visiting the next flower, some of this pollen is rubbed off onto the stigma, of a female flower. When this happens, fertilization is possible, and a fruit, carrying seeds, can develop.
In addition, bees are symbol of activity, work, diligence, and good order.
