Florist company Bloom & Wild release shocking artist impressions of what our world would look like without bees.
Despite the overwhelming evidence proving that our planet’s environmental crisis has reached an absolutely critical point, it seems that some are still in denial.
Responding to the failure to treat climate change with the severity it deserves, Bloom & Wild have created a series of images that illustrate what a bee-less world would be like.
According to a study published by Nature Communications, in the UK alone, 33% of wild pollinator species have decreased in the last 30 years.
On a global scale, the Journal of Insect Conservation found that the population of American bumble bees dropped by 89% between 2007 and 2016 – crazy right? Wait till you see these photos. ‘Concerned about this overall decline,’ the UK-based flower delivery service ‘looked into what would happen to our environment, and the spaces in the world that we enjoy, if bees were to die out completely.’
Bees aren’t just crucial to our environment; they play an extremely important role in our day to day lives as the agriculture industry relies on their pollination to grow food and help crops reproduce. ‘It’s surprising to think how huge an impact bees have on our wellbeing. They are a key part of our ecosystem which need to be protected,’ says Caroline, a lead florist at Bloom & Wild.
