What can people do to help?
People can do many different things to help out from the smallest to the biggest because that is what makes a difference. According to the Infographic “Disappearing Bees” people can buy produce, plant more flowers, and lastly support local beekeepers. Even though this does not seem like much these are the most effective ways people can help save the bees. Helping save the bees is the most important thing to do since they are endangered. The Popular Science page states that people can help out by starting a flowering garden, planting native flowers,being nice to bees, and reporting sightings in the wild. These are the things people can easily do for the bees but what can the government do for the bees with all the options they have.
What can the government do about it?
The government has many options as well as many programs to help solve this issue. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is one of the main groups to help out ever since they placed the bees on the endangered species list. According to Futurism, “this designation opens the door to a variety of federal resources aimed at the preservation and recovery of the species. Federal funds are available to states which are home to colonies of the bumblebees.” This means that they will get all the help they need to help save the bees. People that were working with Obama even helped out to try and solve this issue, “The Obama administration, rushing to secure its environmental legacy, has increased protection for a humble bumblebee"(Scholssberg & Schwartz).
