California-based multinational company Google partnered with The Honeybee Conservancy, a nonprofit organization to create the doodle.

"What we love about today's Google Doodle is how it captures the impact a single bee has on the plants and habitats it visits. Imagine then, the pollinating power that trillions of bees have on ecosystems around the world! Today's Doodle also reminds us all of how small actions performed by individuals everywhere add up to big results," writes Founder and Executive Director of The Honeybee Conservancy, Guillermo Fernandez in the doodle page.

Fernandez lists out five ways to help save bees, even while social distancing in today's world.

  • Support your local beekeeper
  • Donate time or funds to local environmental groups
  • Make safe havens for native bees
  • Create a bee bath
  • Plant a pollinator garden
