Pollination is the transfer of pollen from a male part of a plant to a female part of a plant, later enabling fertilisation of the plant.
Pollination is important because it leads to the production of fruits we can eat and seeds that will create more plants.
Around 35 per cent of food production crops rely solely on bees for pollination and around 75 per cent of all crops get some benefit from pollination by bees.
This means without bees your favourite food or plant may not be available. In turn without enough forage for the bees the bees cannot survive. Pollination is an extremely important relationship in nature to keep bees and plants healthy.
