World Bee Day
The World Bee Day is observed on May 20 to create global awareness about the importance of bees and other pollinators in the ecosystem. It falls on the birth anniversary of Anton Jansa – the pioneer of beekeeping born in 1734. The theme for this year is “Bee Engaged – Build Back Better for Bees”. With this theme, the UN seeks to highlight the importance of creating an environment supportive of the bees’ survival as well as the need to protect them from the threats posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
