Beekeeping is a worldwide pastime, with millions of beekeepers relying on bees for their livelihood and well-being. Bees, in conjunction with wild pollinators, play an important role in preserving biodiversity, ensuring the survival and reproduction of many plants, supporting forest regeneration, promoting sustainability and climate change adaptation, and improving the quantity and quality of agricultural productions.
