Bees are dying, can we live without them?

Reading a stuff article ‘Thousands of bees are dying in Murchison.
No-one knows why’ this week I thought to myself:
what is killing these animals and can we live without them?

Hundreds of thousands of bees are dying in Murchison near Nelson,
why is this happening and how can we stop it?
In theory, they think that wasp bait is killing the bees.
An increase in of wasp bait use could be to blame.  

Problem: Bees are dying and no one knows why.
How can we stop these creatures from dying?

In my opinion, I think that bees are very important.
They make honey, they pollinate fruit flowers so we can have
strawberries, raspberries, feijoas, kiwifruit and so much more.
Without bees, there will be a huge shortage of fruit.
That means that the fruit prices will go up and get more expensive
which means that people won't buy fruit because it is so expensive.
If we don’t have fruit then people won’t be very healthy.

We need a solution to this problem.
For a start, we should put more money into research and find
out what is killing bees, not just a theory of what they
think is killing them.Then we should make a plan on what we
can to do help this situation and stop it from getting worse

In conclusion, I think that we should be doing
more to help the bees from extinction.
Because I don't really think we can live without them because
not many people will be able to buy fruit because it will be so

Cave Stream

When we got to cave stream I rushed to get changed. After that, I ate my bar and then we started to walk down to the cave. the adrenaline rushed through my body I was so excited. when I first put my feet in the water I couldn't feel it because of how thick my socks were after a bit I could and it was freezing. When we entered the cave it was so cold. On the first corner the ice cold water got deeper and deeper and deeper the more you went around the corner it was above my waist but after the corner, it shallowed out and the rest of it was mostly at my ankles some parts went up to my waist but not as high as the first corner. After a while, we got to a big ledge and all got up and turned our torches off and the teacher told us a true story about a family who were all in jeans and a T-shirt they must have been freezing because I was wearing so many layers. On the first semi-big waterfall Russel was helping most of us up but some people lost footing because the rocks were slippery. In the end, we had to climb up this big ladder thing and the adrenaline was pumping through my veins once I got up I had to slide through the last piece on my stomach because it was quite small. Now when I go to Christchurch I can say that I have been there.
