Bees pollinate 1 out of every 3 bites of food you eat. Bees are in danger. Help GloryBee SAVE the BEE.
Why Should We SAVE the BEE?
Our planet’s food supply is absolutely dependent on pollination. One out of every three bites of food Americans consume come from a plant visited by bees or other pollinators. Honey bees pollinate essential crops critical to our good health and produce millions of dollars of honey every year.
In the last 40 years, honey bees have been struggling and populations are declining. This drastic rise in the number of disappearances of western honey bee colonies is called colony collapse disorder. (CCD) Loss of pollinator habitats, toxic pesticides, and genetic modification of crops are all thought to be potential contributing factors, but more research is needed. With nearly 50 percent population losses being reported thus far in 2017, action is needed now more than ever.

By The Numbers
One third of the food you eat is pollinated by bees.
Beekeepers have lost an average of 38% of their hives each winter since 2010.
We've introduced over 150 million bees into our local environment through our annual bee weekend event.
GloryBee has raised over $435,000 for important bee research.
Unlike other charities, 100% of funds raised for SAVE the BEE goes directly to the cause.
