WORLD BEE DAY 2020

20 May 2020

The World Bee Project launched the World Bee Count 2020 on 20 May with the aim of amplifying the importance of pollinators through social media sharing. 

People everywhere were invited to take a picture of the nearest pollinator they could find and upload it to an interactive Global Pollinator Map, using a free mobile World Bee Count app.

Despite the dire shadow cast by the coronavirus, people from 65 countries responded and uploaded over 20,000 photographs demonstrating the inspiring human capacity to come together for the benefit of all.

On 20 May, the Global Pollinator Map was shared publicly by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) as part of the FAO World Bee Day event.

 

World Bee Count 2020 was completed in August 2002.  It was a collaboration with the Center for Analytics Research and Education (CARE) at Appalachian State University, and Hive Tracks. T
he project was coordinated by Max Rünzel.
