THE IMPORTANCE OF CARING FOR BEES30/09/2022
Did you know that a beehive lives on the roof of the CC La Marina?
Bees are the first in the pollination chain, and one of the most important species on the planet.
Although small in size, they are not small in importance. Because bees feed and transport pollen from one flower to another, they contribute to reproduction, survival and the production of the food we eat.
Bees are being depleted by industrialised agricultural practices, such as monoculture and the use of pesticides and herbicides, leading to the loss of bee habitats and, in the long term, contributing to climate change.
This is why 37% of the bee population is currently declining, according to the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services report.
In La Marina, we have become aware of the crucial role that these small-large animals play in our ecosystem by installing a bee hive on the rooftop of the Shopping Centre.
We want to contribute to their survival by giving them a safe, pleasant and well-cared-for place to live. But, if you also want to help them and do your bit, you can:
Consume organic, local and seasonal products to support the organic farming system, which is less harmful to beekeepers.
Locate nearby beekeepers and buy their hive products, including wax cosmetics, honey, propolis and royal jelly, to support sustainable beekeeping.
Provide water by installing a water trough in your garden or balcony.
- Grow native and various plants in your garden or balcony.
Now you know that it is not very difficult to carry out these actions and help to conserve bees and, therefore, the World in which we live.
La Marina is the main commercial and leisure complex in the Marina Baixa region. Situated in the thriving town of Finestrat, La Marina is frequently visited by both residents of Finestrat, Benidorm and surrounding areas, but also remains popular with tourists from Spain, England, Germany, Russia and France. The Centre has more than a hundred shops. These include top brands such as Zara, C&A, Benetton and Ikea. In addition to shopping, La Marina also has a wide range of dining and leisure facilities, many of which are located on its terrace, which offers outdoor seating, children's activities and magnificent views of the city.
