It is an exclusive way for bees to move forest to forest, in the middle of the city. The goal is not to new insects, but to preserve the bee species native to the area and make the public aware of this.
For some decades, the world scientific community has been trying to raise awareness of the bee crisis that increasingly affects the planet. They are one of the main species in terms of plant pollination and it has already been warned that if there is an extinction of them, the entire ecosystem of the planet will be affected. Therefore, many actions are appearing, with the objective of preserving them.
Here in Brazil, a corridor for the migration of these insects is being built safely. As a state initiative, a large 10-km ecological road will be built in Brasilia, connecting the two most important parks in the district. More than 45 thousand trees will be planted with the intention that the bees can move Parque da Cidade to the Brasília National Park.
No new bees will be added, the goal is to conserve native species that already exist in the forests, but which lost territory with the expansion of the city.
The corridor will cross forests and cities, being a kind of exclusive route for bees. Thus being the largest beekeeping corridor in the world. The implementation of this project will preserve not only the most important insects on Earth, but also the natural flora of the territory. For this, it has counted on the participation of citizens, with the purpose of including them in the awareness that one must have around this species.
Why are bees so important?
Bees not only produce honey, but they are the species in charge of pollinating vegetables in the fields and forests close to the hives. Once this process has been carried out, different animals such as birds, butterflies or bats can transport pollen flower to flower, a process that occurs throughout the planet. This allows the germination of plants and fruits, in addition to helping to maintain the world's biodiversity. In other words, without the bees, it would only take a few days for the terrestrial flora to start dying.
The Brasilia corridor already has 80 volunteers and is supervised by biologists throughout the process. Parents have taken the opportunity to educate themselves about bees and forests, being able to participate with their children, who will be the new generations in charge of continuing to collaborate with the environment.
