Bee extinction: Why we're saving the wrong bees


Think honey bees are disappearing? Or that the more hives we have the better? Think again. Here’s why they’re the bad boys of the bee world, and what we should be focusing on instead.

We’re destroying our environment at an alarming rate. But it doesn’t need to be this way. Our new channel Planet A explores the shift towards an eco-friendly world — and challenges our ideas about what dealing with climate change means. We look at the big and the small: What we can do and how the system needs to change. Every Friday we’ll take a truly global look at how to get us out of this mess.
