On 21 June 2024 National Geographic reported: Say bee, and most picture a European honeybee -- a non-native species used in commercial honey production worldwide. But what gets easily forgotten is that North America is home to around 4,000 species of wild bees. To recognize these crucial ecosystem helpers, which provide 75 percent of our global food crop, the United Nations declared May 20 as World Bee Day in 2014. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
