There are over 20,000 species of Bees, but don't let that fool you, the total population has declined by over 87% in last few years thanks to fewer flowers, deforestation, and pesticides. We are destroying their habitats, yet bees are responsible for pollinating crops that make up about a third - 33% - of all the food we eat. And they work hard! Bees fly the equivalent of 3x around the world to produce 1 Kg of honey and they must visit almost 500,000 flowers to produce that Kg of honey! 1 bee alone only produces 5 grams or 1 teaspoon of honey in their lifetime - so it takes the lives of 200 bees to produce 1 Kg of honey! It takes 4,000 bees to weigh 1 Kg. And bees are tidy, they clean and groom each other and the hexagonal honeycomb is the most efficient shape in the world. We may cease to be without our hardworking bees!
This unique bracelet is inspired by Heart Reef, a naturally formed coral reef creating an island in the shape of a heart found on Australia's Great Barrier Reef. The only heart shaped reef in the world, it measures just 17 meters across. Heart Reef is a living animal made up of trillions of tiny polyps living within the calcium corals, which look like flowers, or 'the rain forests of the seas' as they are often called. When sea temperatures rise 1 degree or more above average, the animal polyps are shocked and forced to leave their coral skeleton home. 90% of the coral skeleton's food is provided by it's resident polyps and if the polyps are away too long the reef starts to bleach and then die! Climate Change is heating the seas, its changing weather patterns and therefore ocean currents, upsetting order within the oceans, and too often killing lifeforms which can't adapt fast enough. Taking over 200 million years to form, this iconic Australian reef is a symbol of enduring love.
