These insects are bees. Bees are important for the world. They help food to grow. But bees are dying everywhere. This is a problem for the world.

In Malaysia, one group of people is helping bees. The group's name is "My Bee Savior". "My Bee Savior" knows bees are important. Ooi Leng Chye helps the bee group. Ooi sometimes moves the bees to safe places.

Ooi Leng Chye: "So just move them in, take all the comb away, all the comb out from their original place and then move the bee as well as the comb back and place them into a box in wherever place that we want to keep the bees."

Ooi doesn't wear special clothes with the bees. He says he doesn't need special clothes. He is calm with the bees. The bees don't hurt him. He puts them into a box. He takes the bees to the countryside. The bees start a new home there.

People sometimes find bees in Malaysian cities. In the past, they called firefighters. Firefighters killed the bees. Now, the bee group tries to help. They can move 10 groups of bees a day. They want Malaysian people to understand bees. People don't need to be scared of bees.

Ooi Leng Chye: "I think it's because urban dwellers are more afraid of bees and not so familiar with bees. So their perception is that bees are very dangerous. So the moment they see bees, they'll immediately try to find some way to remove the bees." view less
