Meet the world's first bee apprentice

There are now just a quarter of the bee hives than there were in the UK 100 years ago.

Back then there were a million, now there are only around 270 thousand.

The Bee Farmers Association is trying to tackle this problem by starting a program to get more people interested in keeping the insects.

Rebecca is the first bee apprentice in the UK and she hopes other people will follow her lead.
