The answer's simple: Our bees are in danger. And their decline puts more than our honey supply at risk. Imagine a world without apples, berries, cucumbers, almonds. . . .
Bees transfer pollen and seeds from one flower to another, fertilizing plants so that they can grow and produce food. Cross-pollination helps at least 90 percent of our wild plants and 30 percent of the world’s crops to thrive. SImply put, without bees, much of our food would vanish: Nearly one in every three bites of food we eat depends on pollination.

WHY HELP BEES?
We're at a crisis point. In March 2017, the Environmental Protection Agency placed the first North American bumblebee on the endangered species list.
Imagine Plush wants to be part of the army of scientists and citizens fighting to ensure that the rusty-patch bumblebee is the last North American bee on the endangered species list. That's why, every time someone purchases an Imagine Plush bee, Noor will donate money to the Pollinator Partnership.
