There's never been a time when the pollinating power of the lowly honey bee has been more important to the planet than now.

That's the view of some diplomats at UN Headquarters in New York who are making the case for giving bees their own official international day.

Ambassador Darja Bavdaz Kuret of Slovenia, argues that we need bees to cope with many of the global challenges laid out in the Sustainable Development Goals, such as hunger and biodiversity.

Yet, she says they are under threat like never before, due to climate change and pesticides.

Ambassador Kuret told Liz Scaffidi why we need to be positive, about World Bee Day.
