Not sure if you’ve heard, but bees are dying at an alarming rate. You’ve probably seen the meme that’s been circulating for the past few years, but it’s also something that celebrities like Morgan Freeman, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Scarlett Johannson aren’t here to joke around about.

McDonald’s built a tiny restaurant for bees in Sweden, Haagen-Dazs gives away free ice cream once a year to raise awareness about the declining population of honeybees, and Morgan Freeman converted his 124-acre ranch into a bee haven. We should all be taking steps to ensure our bumbley friends stick around.
