We have received so many amazing questions through our Dear Science campaign, including this one from Nazeli, age 9. I wonder if bees got extinct what would happen to us? As you may know, bees provide a very important role in our ecosystem. They are very important pollinators and pollinate a lot of fruits and vegetables we eat as humans. So, what would happen if there were no more bees to pollinate our plants? What are some ways you can go about helping to protect this important species. Watch the full video below to learn more.
