International News: Mexican Beekeepers rescue bees amidst drought

Posted: Monday, May 20, 2024. 1:41 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: In the sun-drenched fields of Santa Ana Zegache, nestled in Oaxaca, Mexico, farmer Floriberto Matias delicately cradles a honeycomb alive with bustling bees, joined by fellow activists.

With care, they ferry these fragile structures to a nearby apiary.

The severe drought threatens the vibrant tapestry of local flora and the very fabric of bee life.

Eloy Perez, a devoted beekeeper engaged in the community’s rescue endeavors, explained, “Without the work of pollination, which is what bees do, there would be no type of food production, from the smallest grass to the gigantic watermelons.”

Globally, scientists sound alarms over dwindling bee populations, recognizing the profound repercussions for ecosystems and agricultural abundance.

Research underscores threats facing Mexico’s bees including habitat degradation, pesticide exposure, monoculture farming, and the encroachment of pathogens.

Undeterred by adversity, the collective endeavors of Oaxacan farmers unfold, as they move honeycombs to apiaries meticulously provisioned with sustenance—a labor of love, as described by farmer Bernardino Blas.

“It’s our mission in this world: to rescue the bees,” he said.
