In 2015, residents of Oslo, Norway, decided to do something about the dwindling honeybee population by creating a virtual “honey highway”-- a bee-friendly corridor of places in the city where bees can live and feed among marigolds, sunflowers, and other nectar-rich plants. Led by bee conservationists known as BiBy and the Oslo Garden Society, and using public and private resources, safe havens were created on rooftops and balconies throughout the urban landscape.
Roughly a third of Norway’s 200 wild bee species are considered endangered -- a serious problem since 30 to 40 percent of all food production requires pollination.
To bee or not to bee:
Even if bees are not interested in your "highway," the interest and action is significant to our own survival, I think. What we share with all life is our "highway."
