So bees are pretty interesting, but we have a lot more to learn about (and from) them. They live in a near closed-loop, mutually beneficial ecosystem with lots of moving parts, but it all works, producing more than most of us will ever see -- something we could learn a lot from, on a lot of levels. Not only that, they're just dang interesting -- anybody who's ever seen the waggle dance has seen evidence first hand. Bees are worth saving, for sure.
