PEMBROKESHIRE Friends of the Earth is supporting a screening of More Than Honey, the new documentary by Oscar-nominated Markus Imhoof, in support of the Bee Cause campaign.
The multi-award winning film tells a provocative yet touching tale of what might happen if our bees became extinct. It takes an in-depth look at honeybee colonies, examining what’s behind the current bee crisis and why we rely on bees for so many things.s
The screening at Theatr Mwldan, Cardigan, October 14 to 23, is supported by Pembrokeshire Friends of the Earth as part of The Bee Cause campaign to help save Britain’s bees. Local MP’s Steven Crabb and Simon Hart have been invited to attend the event.
In recent years many species of British bee have been declining, placing the food supply and economy under threat. Research by Friends of the Earth shows that without bees, it would cost the UK at least £1.8 billion every year to hand-pollinate crops.
The Bee Cause Campaign has secured a promise from Government that it will draw up a Bee Action Plan to save British bees.
Friends of the Earth is calling on the Government to make the Bee Action Plan ambitious enough to reverse bee decline in the UK. To support this action join The Bee Cause at www.foe.co.uk/bees.
Eleanor Clegg, from Pembrokeshire Friends of the Earth said: “We are really pleased to support More Than Honey because it raises awareness of the plight of bees. Everyone in Pembrokeshire can do their bit for bees. Even a small number of wildflowers or herbs in a window-box can provide food for bees and help them thrive.”
