National Geographic has teamed up with famed actress, director and humanitarian activist Angelina Jolie to raise awareness about protecting bees and a new program to empower women beekeepers around the world. As part of the effort, Angelina Jolie was photographed covered in bees. The photo, by Dan Winters, is meant to be a representation of the balance between humans and the prolific pollinators that are bees. Angelina Jolie, who, as a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, has seen firsthand the connection between environmental destruction, food insecurity and human displacement around the world.

“With so many things that we’re worried about in the world and so many people feeling overwhelmed by the bad news and the reality of what’s falling apart and what’s happening, this is an [issue] that we can handle,” Jolie said. “We can certainly all step in and do our part, and we can do a lot better and everyone can do that.”
