1. Why Are Bees Important? (¿Por qué son importantes las abejas?)
This coloring page series features two pages that depict a diverse array of bee species, including mason bees, carpenter bees, sweat bees, and honey bees.
The first page highlights three key reasons why bees are important:
Pollination: Bees pollinate about 16% of global flowering plants.
Food: Bees are responsible for one out of every three bites of food we eat.
Money: The annual economic value of pollinators is $235-577 billion.
The second page cites the sources used in the first, to back up the facts and to encourage you to dig deeper.
