Bee Day Australia in Myanmar

We received this wonderful email across the world from Myanmar (Burma)
Last September (2021) when it was World Honey Month, I was keen to share with the students in the school that I am principal of (in Yangon, Myanmar), how important bees are for our world.
Researching for information, I came across Bee Day Australia’s website and was really impressed by the content and access to relevant information.
I shared Bee Day Australia’s ideas with my school in our assembly and since then, the students have impressed me with their response to how they can personally help bee populations thrive by the choices they make because of the information shared on Bee Day Australia’s website.
I was not able to locate any information relevant to children other that the Bee Day Australia website which I greatly appreciated.
Thanks BeeDay Australia for the content that was filled with positivity and hands on ideas for children around the world to have access to, so that they can understand about how important bees are for our future.

The Pollinators with Bee Day Australia

For all of our Sydney based followers please come along if you can to a screening of the documentary ‘The Pollinators’. For tickets, visit: Thursday, 12th December, 6:15pm Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace 380 Military Rd, CREMORNE, New South Wales, 2090, Australia Movie Synopsis: Thousands of semi-trailers crisscross the country in the dead of night delivering goods through the darkness to stores, warehouses and factories nationwide. But some of them carry an unsuspected and highly unusual cargo. Honey bees. Tens of billions of them are transported back and forth from one end of the United States to the other in a unique annual migration that’s indispensable to the feeding of America. One out of every three bites we eat, the growth of almost all our fruits, nuts and vegetables, would be impossible without pollination from bees. A new documentary feature, The Pollinators, directed by Peter Nelson and produced by Sally Roy, Nelson and Michael Reuter, presents the fascinating and untold story. And warns that the bees are in serious danger. Genre: Documentary – Environmental Classification: Check the classification Producer: Sally Roy, Peter Nelson and Michael Reuter Director: Peter Nelson
