Bee Flower Nests!

Check this out: https://www.treehugger.com/natural-sciences/these-special-bees-craft-nests-flower-petals.html

Back in 2009, scientists stumbled upon the work of Osmia avosetta bees, a special species of mason bees.

These bees used flower petals to make their nests, where the larvae would develop.

Our site,  being called Central Park Bees as the main subject, relates to to the hashtag I’ve made.

Bee was put in the hashtag because it was our main subject.

Park was put in the hashtag because our goal location is Central Park.

Fam, as in family, was put in the hashtag to form a sense of unity between the supporters of Central Park Bees

To be honest, creating this hashtag wasn’t the easiest thing because first off, the first hashtag, #CentralBees, is a great hashtag. Although there hasn’t been much activity on the hashtag, it has been promoted through my buddy’s social media account.

Secondly, more generic hashtags such as #savethebees #savebees #bees #centralpark had already been used.

And thus, in order to find a hashtag that would sum up our goal, I went with  #BEEPARKFAM.

This meme highlights the very important reason for saving bees: without them, the food supply would be basically nonexistent. This meme is very literal, with its iconic face that expresses the feeling of smiling even though you’re not okay. I personally find this cute, but it can also be seen as very creepy. I think this is successful in emphasizing the real danger that comes along with not taking care of nature and bees.
