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."
