The UK’s Guardian newspaper has published a report noting Slovenia’s efforts in the fight to protect a vital pollinator, the bee, at local, national and international levels, with the latter seen in the introduction of World Bee Day, a Slovenian-sponsored initiative that aims to ensure a safe future for this key link in the global food production chain. 

The article focuses on Ljubljana’s “rapid response” beekeeper unit that can be called on the general emergency number, 112, if anyone sees a swarm of bees in search of new hive. It’s here we learn that in 2016 there were sometimes up to five such swarms a day in the capital, and hence the unit was established.

You can learn more about bee-keeping in Slovenia, and how it’s helping to raise the nation’s profile, as well as see some pictures of the city from new angles, at the original story, here.
