denéva Creates Buzz with Bee Protection Foundation

denéva skincare is introducing the Bee Protection Foundation (BPF) by joining forces with the Pollinator Partnership Canada. The BPF mission is to promote education about the importance of bees, fund research and development that benefits bee populations and actively restore their habitat.

Why Bees?

Bees play a vital role in pollinating over 100 crop species that constitute ninety percent of the human diet and account for around $30 billion worth of crops annually.

The consequences of bee extinction extend far beyond the immediate losses in agricultural productivity. If bees were to vanish, a catastrophic chain reaction would ensue. Plants that rely on bee pollination would decline, leading to a domino effect that impacts animals higher up the food chain, eventually affecting human populations.

In a world with over 7 billion people, the absence of bees could render the sustenance of humanity unsustainable.

Pollinating animals like bees, birds, bats, butterflies, beetles, and other small mammals travel from plant to plant carrying pollen on their bodies in a vital interaction that allows the transfer of genetic material critical to the reproductive system of most flowering plants – the very plants that bring us countless fruits, vegetables, and nuts, half of the world’s oils, fibers and raw materials; prevent soil erosion, and increase carbon sequestration

This nearly invisible ecosystem is a precious resource that requires attention and support - - and in disturbing evidence found around the globe, is increasingly in jeopardy. Pollinator Partnership Canada (P2C) and denéva skincare urges you to learn how this system supports you, and how your actions can help support a healthy and sustainable pollination.

Why Are Pollinators Important?

Between 75% - 95% of all flowering plants on the earth need help with pollination – they need pollinators. Pollinators provide pollination services to over 180,000 different plant species and more than 1200 crops. That means that 1 out of every three bites of food you eat is thanks to pollinators.

What Do We Know About the Pollinator's Decline?

Pollinator populations are changing. Many pollinator populations are in decline and this decline is attributed most severely to a loss in feeding and nesting habitats. Pollution, the misuse of chemicals, disease, and changes in climatic patterns are all contributing to shrinking and shifting pollinator populations. In some cases there isn’t enough data to gauge a response, and this is even more worrisome.

What's Next?

denéva's Bee Protection Foundation is a Pollinator Partnership Ambassador and works closely with the organization to study and help restore the bees natural habitat.
