Morgan Freeman converts his Mississippi ranch into a giant sanctuary for wild bees

Morgan Freeman converts his Mississippi ranch into a giant sanctuary for wild bees

Freeman didn’t start keeping bees because of a sweet tooth , but rather as a direct response to the mass bee die-offs that have been threatening the survival of wild bees for the past several years. The actor recognized the opportunity to make a difference through personal action, so he imported 26 hives full of bees from Arkansas and started feeding them sugar water. Freeman said he doesn’t wear the beekeeper’s hat and veil because the bees do not sting him, joking that the protective gear is “for people who can’t resonate” with the bees. When Fallon suggested Freeman had become “at one with the bees,” the actor couldn’t help but agree.
