People need bees.

Bees are vital to ecosystems, they help pollinate 35% of the world's food. A world without pollinators would be devastating for food production.

General Mills removed mascot "Buzz" the bee from their Honey-Nut Cheerios cereal boxes to raise awareness for the declining bee population and their global initiative.

The Cheerios website says: "Buzz is missing because there's something serious going on with the world's bees. Bee populations everywhere have been declining at an alarming rate, and that includes honeybees like Buzz."
