Promoting awareness and support for a declining bee population across the state is the main goal of a request for approval of a special license plate.
The Missouri State Beekeepers Association is seeking approval of a “Bee Friendly” plate to be produced and made available to the general public.
The association needs at least 200 people to show interest by signing up for the license plate for it to move forward to production.
More information about the proposed “Bee Friendly” license plate is available below:
The Missouri State Beekeepers Association (MSBA) is seeking to promote awareness and support for the declining bee population in the state of Missouri by introducing a “Bee Friendly” license plate. The organization hopes to get approval from the Missouri Legislature to begin production and distribution of the license plates to residents throughout the state.
According to the MSBA, bees play a crucial role in pollination, a process necessary for the growth of many of the foods we eat. However, the bee population has been declining in recent years due to factors such as pesticide use and habitat loss. The “Bee Friendly” Missouri license plate is designed to raise awareness of the importance of bees and encourage the planting of pollinator-friendly gardens.
In order to get the “Bee Friendly” Missouri license plate approved by the Missouri Legislature, the MSBA is calling on interested individuals to sign up for the license plate. The organization needs at least 200 people to show interest in purchasing the license plate to move forward with production.
“This is an opportunity for Missouri residents to make a tangible contribution to the health of the bee population in our state,” said MSBA President Michael Brown. “We encourage everyone who cares about the environment and the food we eat to sign up for a ‘Bee Friendly’ license plate and help spread awareness of the importance of bees.”
Individuals interested in supporting the “Bee Friendly” license plate can visit the MSBA website at http://mobees.org/beefriendly to sign up. The MSBA is also encouraging residents to contact their local representatives and urge them to support the legislation.
