Morgan Freeman is one of those celebrities who is adored by both the young and old.

An actor, filmmaker, and director, he’s known for many roles, but now is also being celebrated for his participation in helping to revive the bee population.

As shared a while ago by MNN, Morgan Freeman is so concerned about the bee die-off epidemic that the’s converted his 124-acre ranch into a sanctuary for the bumbling insects.

It was during a media tour for the film “Lucy” that Morgan Freeman explained the reason behind his decision to build his own apiary. He said, “I just received, two weeks ago, 26 hives of bees, so I’m very busy… I’m beekeeping…”

Recognizing that bees play an integral part in the maintenance of our ecosystem, Morgan Freeman stated:

“There’s a concerted effort to bring bees back onto the planet …

We do not realize that they are the foundation, I think, of the growth of the planet, the vegetation… I have so many flowering things and I have a gardener too.

Because she takes care of the bees too, all she does is figure out, ‘OK, what would they like to have?’, so we’ve got acres and acres of clover, we’re planting stuff like lavender, I’ve got like, maybe 140 magnolia trees, big blossoms,” he adds.

“I’ve not ever used [the beekeeping hat] with my bees,” he says. “They haven’t (stung me) yet, because right now I’m not trying to harvest honey or anything, I’m just feeding them… I think they understand, ‘Hey, don’t bother this guy, he’s got sugar water here.”
