In Life on Earth - Cross-Pollination the bee features prominently as a testimony to the ingenuity, grace and inherently beautiful structures present in the natural world, structures that we have been observing and interacting with for thousands of years. The Queen Emerges recalls the fact that bees have changed little since the jurassic period some 100 million years ago, and have been a source of beeswax, honey (liquid gold) and wonder in many cultures since ancient times. As a wild creature, bees have adapted to the predominance of humans in the world but are increasingly under threat. If we want to preserve the pollinators of over one third of the world’s fresh food, how will we adapt our lives to protect theirs?
