We’ve long admired those dedicated to the Melipona Stingless Bees of the Yucatán. When someone like Angelina Jolie champions the cause, the world takes notice.
Angelina Jolie recently visited Quintana Roo, Mexico this year, driven by her commitment to the Melipona bee. Her journey wasn’t just personal; it was a collaboration with the UNESCO program, “Women for the Bees.” As an ambassador, Angelina Jolie aims to spotlight the pivotal role women have in preserving beekeeping traditions and the Melipona bee’s critical ecological significance.
For over 3,200 years, the Maya have treasured the Melipona bee. Angelina Jolie’s involvement underscores the urgency of safeguarding these pollinators, whose decline could reshape ecosystems, cultures, and economies. With Angelina Jolie’s voice, global attention now shines on the Melipona bees and Yucatán’s pioneering women.
