Collection: Degree Films 2023

Wild Bees usually live solitary lives in nesting sites they have dug themselves, where they prepare a breeding ground for their offspring. Many coexist with one plant species each, for which they are morphologically suitably equipped to get at the sweet nectar. But a mischief has spread in their habitat. Hundreds of thousands of farmed honey bees are buzzing around the yellow flowers, displacing the Wild Bees. The Wild Bees' habitat is disappearing. And with them, the plants that have relied on their faithful pollinators for the past millions of years.
