Extinction of bees may have major impact on food supply, UN says
The UN says the fate of our food supply may rest on her wings

Thousands of species of insects could soon go extinct, and that could put the world's food supply in jeopardy.

A United Nations report says that bees, butterflies and even birds are at risk.

Three quarters of the world's food crops depend on pollination by insects or animals.

The UN says sustainable agricultural practices, diversified crops, and eco-friendly food production could help endangered species recover.
