When it comes to bees, everyone may think of their diligent nectar collection. In fact, bees are a kind of creatures that need to be preserved, because one-third of human food sources are inseparable from bees and other insect-pollinated plants.

The number of bees has been declining in recent years, which means that humans may face food crises in the future.

Some beekeepers and shopping mall organizations jointly organized an exhibition themed "Bees Conservation", hoping to let the public understand the characteristics of bees and their importance to the ecology, and introduce the concept of "urban beekeeping", hoping to create an environment where humans and bees coexist in the future.

Speaking of the opportunity for She Zhuocheng to come into contact with bees, he said that because his stomach was not good, he tried to eat local honey for health care. During the period, he accidentally met local beekeepers. After trying to get close to bees, he found out that it was. Bees are also cute.

Bees are closely related to human food

After gaining a deeper understanding of bees, She Zhuocheng learned that bees are closely related to human food because bees are needed to spread pollen among crops.

He quoted Einstein as saying, "If the bees disappear, humans will also perish within four years."

However, due to different factors in recent years, the number of bees has dropped significantly, which has attracted the attention of the world.

Hong Kong also seldom mentions the conservation of bees, so he hopes that through the exhibition, the public can initially understand the importance of bees to the earth.

Part of the exhibition uses the little-known characteristics of bees as the theme. "In fact, many people don't know that bees know how to dance. This is one of their ways of communication."

She Zhuocheng explained that the dance of bees is mainly about sharing food with their partners, which is different from other ways of communicating with insects. He hopes to attract citizens to learn more about bees through interesting and cold knowledge.

People generally think that bees are social creatures, but She Zhuocheng pointed out that 90% of bees in the world are solitary bees. Most of them live alone or together. "A few people know about solitary bees, but they are actually the most important thing. The role of pollen spreading is all performed by them." The main habitat of solitary bees is bamboo tubes and tree holes. Unlike bees that secrete beeswax to build nests, they have low aggressiveness and are more suitable for survival in cities.

She Zhuocheng hopes to promote the concept of "urban beekeeping" through the exhibition and let the public know that bees and people can coexist.

Most citizens believe that beekeeping can only be carried out on farms and rural areas. She Zhuocheng hopes to promote the concept of "urban beekeeping" through exhibitions, because France, Japan and other places have already kept beekeeping in some public facilities in cities.

She Zhuocheng cooperated with Tuen Mun Town Plaza to place beehives on the Tuen Mun Industrial Building and bring honey in the exhibition workshops to let the public taste the "Tuen Mun honey", hoping that the public would know that bees can coexist with people, and then beekeeping in the city The concept was extended to different places in Hong Kong to contribute to the conservation of bees.
