  • 2019 - UN World Bee Day 3v M/Sheet on First Day Cover
DESCRIPTION The United Nations Postal Administration will celebrate World Bee Day on 20 May 2019 by issuing three stamp mini-sheets showcasing bees and flowers. The United Nations designated 20 May as World Bee Day, because of Slovenia’s initiative in 2017 to raise public awareness about the importance of bees, the threats they face, the need to protect their natural habitat and their contribution to sustainable development. Bees and other pollinators, such as butterflies, bats and hummingbirds, are increasingly under threat from human activities. Pollinators allow many plants, including many food crops, to reproduce. Not only do pollinators contribute directly to food security, but they are key to conserving biodiversity – a cornerstone of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Close to three-quarters of the world’s crop species depend, at least in part, on bees and other pollinators. Pollinators play an essential role in helping to feed a rising world population in a sustainable way and help maintain biodiversity and a vibrant ecosystem. They contribute to building resilient livelihoods and creating new jobs, especially for small farm owners, satisfying the growing demand for healthy, nutritious food as well as non-food products. Carla Mucavi, Director of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Liaison Office in New York, commented: “Bees play a crucial role in increasing crop yields and promoting food security and nutrition. Without bees, [we] cannot achieve a world without hunger and World Bee Day recognizes the importance of these tiny helpers and will increase awareness of the need to protect them.” The bees and flowers featured on the sheets are as follows: NEW YORK SHEET:
Bee: Cadeguala (diphaglossine bees)
Flower: Corydalis flavula GENEVA SHEET:
Bee: Bombus (bumblebee)
Flower: Lobelia cardinalis VIENNA SHEET:
Bee: Melissodes (long-horned bees)
Flower: Scutellaria lateriflora The photographs of the bees were provided by the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center of the United States Geological Survey.
