We love diversity!
It’s International Day for Biological Diversity
Up to 58.000 species disappear from our planet each year. Even if we do not notice it, it will create severe problems if extinction continuous at the level of today.
How many species exist on our planet? We do not know exactly. As mother nature has created such a vast variety of plants and animals, it makes it hard for us to notice, if some species disappear. Fact is, that we will recognise it someday.
Up to 58.000 species disappear from our planet each year.
This is very sad, but the most dramatic about it is the fact, that extinction is happening a thousand times more quickly because of humans.
Overfishing, pollution or the increasing temperature affect the species on our planet: as the temperature on the planet increases, permafrost and polar regions are melting and habitats with the same climates are found higher up in the mountains.
Animals lose their habitat, their natural enemies and in the end their food source.
Biological diversity is vital for human existence
For the survival of our planet and the human mankind, diversity is important. If our world is one huge monoculture, there is no survival and the human species will come to an end too. As our ecosystem is a cycle, each plant and each living creature has its part to make our world function. The loss of some species will lead to a collapse of the whole cycle.
Pollinators are crucial for our existence. Without pollinators, for example, plants won’t grow anymore. No plants, no life: Plants are not only the building block of the habitat of many animals, they are the natural source of food. Moreover, plants are responsible for cleaning our air.
Let’s keep a closer look on our way of living
Everyone can have a share in protecting our planet. Have a look what’s on your plate: avoid eating fish our meat that comes from endangered species and have a look “behind the scenes”: many products contain raw materials that pollute our planet heavily when processed or that are not degradable. Some ingredients harm the natural habitat of species that become endangered as they lose their living space – palm oil has been in the media a lot in the last months.
More than honey
As bees are not only busy, but one of the most important pollinators, we started a project to support biological apiary. You can have a share in protecting our planet and support this project. And there is an extra: if you become a beehive-sponsor, you do not only get a treat, but also will the smell of each flowering meadow you come across in the future remind you that you are one of the people protecting this precious natural spectacle.
