Bees

“Not a single bee has ever sent you an invoice. And that is part of the problem – because most of what comes to us from nature is free, because it is not invoiced, because it is not priced, because it is not traded in markets, we tend to ignore it.”  ~Pavan Sukhdev, author of UN report The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity – October 2010

I found this quote on one of my favorite blogs,  Jules of Nature, and if you’re unfamiliar with it then you’re in for a treat.

This also seems like a good time to plug one of my favorite organizations, The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, which (among other things) works on behalf of bees.
