Kids Protect The Species T-Shirt—Bumble Bee
Inspired by nature and driven by the desire to protect it, we commissioned a series of artworks by artist Raku Inoue. The resulting collection of Protect our species t-shirts features prints of endangered animals hand-arranged using real plants and flowers. Bumble bees are balancing on the brink of extinction, with population down nearly 90% since 1990, due to the negative affects of climate change, loss of habitat, pesticides, diseases and parasites. Bumble bees are the most important pollinators of our crops, forests, parks and meadows and a crucial part of the natural mechanism that sustains us and our world.
