Did you know that Morgan Freeman, the legendary Hollywood actor, is actually a big lover of bees? Not beers – bees. Freeman is aware of the recent massive colonies of bees disappearing from the face of Earth and has decided to do something about it rather than wait with his hands crossed.
The actor has turned his 124-acre ranch in Mississippi into a wild bee sanctuary that might help save bees. Freeman talked about his beekeeping hobby to Jimmy Fallon back in 2014, saying that he’s trying to bring back bees to Earth. He said that he has acres of flowering plants the bees love. The legendary actor even imported 26 hives of bees from Arkansas, feeding them sugar water all the time.
While there’s no way to tell if Freeman’s actions will even scratch the surface of the problem, it sure feels good to know that people and public figures are doing something about it.
