Angelina Jolie, a well-known advocate for bee preservation, organized a special class in Yucatan, Mexico for school children to learn about the endangered Melipona bee. This event was held in honor of World Bee Day and photographs from May 22 show the Hollywood star dressed in a simple white dress, enthusiastically teaching the students about this non-venomous breed of bee. Utilizing captivating visuals, Angelina adeptly led the class and answered their questions. The students from a public school in the Yucatan peninsula actively participated, making the session both educational and engaging.
