Norway is building the very first highway for bees
Bees contribute greatly to the planet’s flora through pollination and by providing honey for greedy humans. Yet, all we know them for is their sting. Norway had decided to pay the bees their due with the announcement of the world’s first bee highway. The highway is created to promote movement of the bees without the risks of running out of floral lands. There are a number of intentionally planted shelter points at consistent intervals thanks to the efforts of Bybi, a group that is leading this initiative. Even corporate buildings have contributed their effort and spaces to the cause by lending out their terraces and open spaces to the world’s finest pollinators.
This could well be an action of paranoia and rightly so. Einstein’s prediction, “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man,” seems to be drawing neared. In the US farmers have had to hire bees to do the job, thanks to their shortage.
