In recent years, more and more people are becoming aware of the importance of the bee population. They are extremely important in the food chain, moreover, they act as a natural pollinator. If there are no bees then most of our food sources would dry out. It can be a potential human extinction threat.
Morgan Freeman has demonstrated his activism by turning his hand to help the bees!
That is way this major problem has sparked interest in recent years, because they number has rapidly decreased.
Many of the activists that fight for their preservation are Hollywood stars. Yes, some of them really care about the world.
One of them is Morgan Freeman.
Using his own land he has turned part of his estate into a bee sanctuary in an effort to boost bee numbers.
He discussed this amazing move in The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon.
“There’s a concerted effort to bring bees back onto the planet. We do not realize that they are the foundation, I think, of the growth of the planet, the vegetation. I have so many flowering things, and I have a gardener too. Because she takes care of the bees too, all she does is figure out, ‘OK, what would they like to have?’, so we’ve got acres and acres of clover, we’re planting stuff like lavender, I’ve got like, maybe 140 magnolia trees, big blossoms,”
Using his influential status in this way to help the bees will surely do wonders for the cause.
