It turns out bees do more than most people realize—for such small, short-lived creatures, they do a lot of heavy lifting to keep life on Earth in balance. They make 1/3 of our nutritious fruits and vegetables possible, and they function as a buzzing alarm system for our planet's ecosystem.
Basically, bees are magical fuzzy little flower-hopping life-bringers.
And guess what? Bees are in trouble. But how do you get people to pay attention to the plight of a disappearing bug? You have to get a little wild. (Well, OK, maybe a lot wild.)
So join us for an extraordinary look at life inside the hive.
Meet the bees—the queen, the workers and the drones—in this wonderfully fantastic and wildly educational series of short films created by Isabella Rossellini, actress, director and uncanny Burt impersonator.
Take a look at how these fun little masterpieces were made in these behind the scenes photos.
