FIRST AID KIT
There are so many people who live in such a place where they have zero medical support nearby them. If someone gets sick in their family they need to go too far from home for medical support. So if we give them the first aid kit and they apply for the medicines at the beginning of the disease they can save themselves from getting caught in serious illness. They can stop illness at the very first place.
So we are going to distribute the first aid kit to them.
Why we're doing it:
Out of the 100 crop species that provide us with 90% of our food, 35% are pollinated by bees, butterflies and other pollinators (source).
Bees are the primary initiators of reproduction among plants, as they transfer pollen from the male stamens to the female pistils.
40% of Beehives have died unexpectedly.
Effects of bee extinction on human life:
Less production of food crops will ultimately lead to worldwide famine. Hunger and poverty will be very common. Freshwater will start drying up as well as, as there will be fewer trees for water retention to occur. With less water and diminishing food,
humans will die of thirst and starvation. Fertility would also suffer a setback, followed by a drop in the rate of reproduction.
How will we do it: We will make little Forests and gardens for Butterflies and honeybees all over the city with man-made butterfly and honeybee houses. We will make bee gardens with a high diversity of plants.
So they can attract a greater diversity of bee as well.
• We will plant native flowers, herbs, and shrubs in them. Flowers of different colors, fragrances, and height. which will bloom in every season throughout the year so the bees and butterflies can have nectar in every season.
• It will be called as Honeybee's paradise or garden.
Other aspects of Butterflies and honeybees:
People love butterflies.
• Butterflies and moths are part of our natural heritage and have
been studied for over 300 years.
• Butterflies and moths are beautiful. Many are iconic and
• Butterflies and moths have fascinating life-cycles that are used
in many countries to teach children about the natural world. The
transformation from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis is one of the
wonders of nature.
• Butterflies make the world a little more colorful. Their vivid
wing coloration and fluttering flight path lend a special touch of
beauty to nature.
• Artists, designers, poets, and songwriters have been using
butterflies as subjects and inspirations in their work.
• In some cultures, butterflies are often portrayed as symbols of
souls, freedom, love, and peace.
• A garden that attracts butterflies will also bring native bees and
birds. All play a role in increasing biodiversity – the variety of
plants, animals and micro-organisms, and their ecosystems.
• Because butterflies are so sensitive to habitat and climate
change, scientists are monitoring them as one way of observing
the wider effects of habitat fragmentation and climate change.
If butterfly populations diminish, the impact is felt higher up
and can affect the entire ecosystem.
• As you can imagine, butterflies can be found at the base of the
food chain, making them an important food source for many
birds and mice.
• This means that when the butterfly population suffers, so does
everything else above it – creating a “butterfly effect”.
Interestingly, nearly two-thirds of all invertebrate species can be
linked back to the butterfly via the food chain.
