As it appears, Morgan Freeman is an extremely avid beekeeper! One of Hollywood’s top leading men over the last few decades is taking a stand on the declining bee population. Check out his hilarious beekeeping monologue with Jimmy Fallon:
Freeman, who lives in Mississippi, recognizes how essential bees are to our society and way of life, and has converted his 124-acre ranch into a haven for 26 bee colonies. This is significant because there is not a whole lot of attention placed in the dying bee population among the mainstream media. The exception has been – obviously – National Geographic and – surprisingly – Rolling Stone, who did an article about a commercial beekeeper, who had thousands of colonies die off in a single year.
