Without bees, the produce section at the market would be reduced by up to 50 percent and could pose a major threat to global agriculture. Some of the foods that are produced from pollinated plants include apples, lemons, carrots, onions and broccoli. Since 2006, beekeepers have noticed that their honeybee colonies are decreasing; this phenomenon has been given the name Colony Collapse Disorder. More than 30 percent of honeybee colonies have been disappearing each year, according to Nature.com. The proposed reasons for the disappearance of the bees are due to pesticides and insecticides, the spread of viruses and disease, habitat loss, poor nutrition, the varroa mite and stress factors. In parts of China, the need for hand pollination has already become a reality. Hand pollination by humans is far less efficient than the pollination work done by bees. Organizations such as the Xerces Society are seeking to educate people about the significance of bees, and are helping to promote survival of the bees through efforts like sending seeds to people to plant in their gardens to create bee-friendly environments.

In the past 20 years, the author notes that the Amazon has lost 763,000 sq km, an area the size of two Germanys. In addition another 1.2m sq km has been estimated as degraded by cutting below the canopy and fire.
Sharks play a vital role in the oceans in a way that the average fish does not. Most sharks serve as top predators at the pinnacle of the marine food pyramid, and so play a critical role in ocean ecosystems. Directly or indirectly they regulate the natural balance of these ecosystems, at all levels, and so are an integral part of them. As they usually hunt old, weak or sick prey, they help to keep the prey population in good condition, healthy and strong, enabling these more naturally fit animals to reproduce and pass on their genes. The effects of removing sharks from ocean ecosystems, although complex and rather unpredictable, are very likely to be ecologically and economically damaging – See more at: http://www.supportoursharks.com/
There is the seventh continent that is a third of the size of the United States but completely uninhabited. And for good reason, since it consists of an accumulation of plastic waste in the oceans… #pollution #plastic #trashvortex Don’t you think it is time to realize what we are doing?
The food discarded by retailers and consumers in the most developed countries would be more than enough to feed all of the world’s 870 million hungry people, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Food waste is not only a social cost, but it contributes to growing environmental problems like climate change, experts say, with the production of food consuming vast quantities of water, fertilizer and land. The fuel that is burned to process, refrigerate and transport it also adds to the environmental cost.
