This SAVE THE BEES print supports all the preservation and conservation efforts from organisations and individuals. Bees are a vital part of our ecosystem as pollinators for our plants and crops but climate change is increasingly affecting them.
Any print we sell, will help planting trees across the world via our JUST ONE tree project.
One aspect of climate change is an increasing number of days with extreme heat. Soroye et al. analyzed a large dataset of bumble bee occurrences across North America and Europe.
It found that an increasing frequency of unusually hot days is increasing local extinction rates, reducing colonization and site occupancy, and decreasing species richness within a region, independent of land-use change or condition.
As average temperatures continue to rise, bumble bees may be faced with an untenable increase in frequency of extreme temperatures. (Source)
