In Spain, beekeepers transport bees to very high areas in order to protect them from high temperatures and the use of pesticides, which may affect the survival of their species.

Beekeepers in Girona, northeastern Spain, have transported about 1 million black Iberian bee and their hives to an altitude of 1,200 meters above sea level, as climate change and large-scale agriculture affect bee populations and survival, the Daily Mail reported on Sunday. Beekeepers move bees to heights and place their cells under trees to provide shade from the sun’s heat.

Although bees are not on the verge of extinction, honeybee numbers are declining rapidly, dropping by 89 percent between 2007 and 2016. Bees are an integral part of the global food supply system because they pollinate 90 percent of food crops. Without the world’s population, farmers will have trouble producing basic foods such as fruits and vegetables, as well as cotton.
