Minecraft is buzzing
Each area that bees improve offer countless gameplay opportunities, from sticky surfaces (handy!) to flourishing farms (tasty!). Hives can be harvested for honey, and honey becomes sugar. In Minecraft, as in real life, everything is connected in one harmonious cycle. And in both worlds, it all starts with the bees!
Given how much bees do for us, it’s up to us to do something for them! In honor of these honey-making heroes, Mojang and World Wildlife Fund have teamed up to help save the bees—but we still need your help!
You’ve Filled the Honey Bottle!
Fantastic! Thanks to your efforts, the honey bottle is now full. 50,000,000 bottles in 72 hours! To learn more about why bees are important IRL, we’ve included some tips based on info from our partner, World Wildlife Fund.
Now you can get "Way of the Bee,” a free map by Razzleberries. Have a sweet time playing and help the bees!
Did you know that the bee is one of the hardest working farmers in the world? More than three quarters of the world’s food crops are partially dependent on pollinators like bees! Without their hard work, our world would be a less flavorful and diverse place.
Just like humans, bees thrive on diversity! They need a wide variety of flowers to collect pollen from—and the more flowers, the better! As bees buzz from bloom to bloom, they pollinate and create a better and more beautiful world for all of us. But bees, and native bees most of all, are in danger of steep decline.
