Would You Save The Bees?
National Geographic recently surveyed people on Facebook, asking them if they could spend the rest of their lives saving one particular species, which one would it be, and most people answered: bees. While it may seem like a strange species for most survey respondents to save, bees are vital for ecosystems and their inhabitants. This survey generated 14,000 responses, and bees come in as the top species selected with 1,789 picks. The other species selected in the top ten are included in the list below, in order of their ranking:
Species selected in order of ranking, with Bees as the top response:
- Bees (1,789)

- Whale (359)
- Polar Bear (286)
- Dog (249)
- Rhinoceros (238)
- Shark (210)
- Turtle (168)
- Gorilla (140)
With nearly half of the bee species at risk of extinction, it is important that we do our part to help them thrive and survive. Most importantly, one of the main causes of the threat of bees and extinction is the loss of habitats due to insecticides and pollution. Bees were actually added to the 2016 U.S. Endangered Species List.
