Famous as one of America’s favorite narrators, Morgan Freeman is hoping to tell a new story for the world’s declining honeybee population by giving them his 124-acre (50 hectares) ranch to live on. The 81-year-old actor took up beekeeping as a hobby in 2014 and converted his Mississippi ranch into a bee sanctuary.

Back in 2014, Morgan Freeman decided to turn his 124-acre ranch into a pollinator sanctuary, specifically bees.
