We're losing bees to pesticides, agricultural practises, and to them just straight up vanishing. And we're doing little or nothing to help, while doing a lot to hinder them. We're destroying meadows, impressing them into agricultural work, and malnourishing them too. And all they do all day is toil away, making honey, making flowers, giving us almonds and apples and tiny window-dramas of escape from our homes. We need to do more, like Ian Hamilton Finlay, to give them beautiful garden homes, and to rebuild their habitats. How can we lose? Who doesn't like tiny flying pandas?
