May 20 is World Bee Day! Why May 20? Anton Janša, considered to be the pioneer of modern beekeeping practices, was born in Slovenia on this day in 1734. The purpose of World Bee day is to raise awareness of the incredible importance of bees in our food chains and ecosystems. It's a topic we're all learning more about in Slambovia and one that is near and dear to our hearts.
