Protecting the Pollinators

In case you hadn’t heard, the bees are disappearing at an alarming rate! We’ve mentioned the impact that bees have on our ecosystem as a whole, but it’s an important topic that needs more attention. Without the bees, we wouldn’t have the food we need to survive. Thankfully, steps are being taken to protect bees and their colonies. One helpful new idea comes from Matilde Boelhouwer in Veghel, Netherlands. Using 3D printing, she’s created colorful and nutritious fake flowers to feed the bees—as well as other pollinating insects—and keep them pollinating! Check out the video to learn more about this creative solution.
