Bees, including managed honeybees and other wild species, are estimated to pollinate around a third of our food crops. This includes products such as strawberries, tomatoes, almonds and lots more. Our supermarkets will look very different if bee populations continue to decline. In 2010, the United Nations Environment Programme reported that: "The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) estimates that out of some 100 crop species which provide 90 percent of food worldwide, 71 of these are bee-pollinated. In Europe alone, 84 percent of the 264 crop species are animal pollinated and 4000 vegetable varieties exist thanks to pollination by bees." The bottom line is if bees disappear, so does the vast majority of our food.
