Alvarium Impact

Bees have been around for 130 million years. The first flowers emerged around the same time. Bees and flowers have evolved together, each becoming more diverse and sophisticated over the millennia. At some point, bees changed from being solitary creatures into social ones, living together. Honeybees went one step further and developed colony life, sharing their homes and duties. They live in well-organised apiaries, built in nests or man-made hives (alvaria) that protect them from wind and rain. These colonies are large and complex examples of cooperation and collaboration, with up to 100,000 bees working together as if they were one. Their roles within the community and their responsibilities to the environment in which they live and work are critical to this cohabitation. We, too, live in complex societies and, like bees, must depend on one another to protect our environment.
