Morgan Freeman Converts His 124-acre Ranch Into A Sanctuary For Honey Bees To Save The Insects

Morgan Freeman has converted his 124-acre ranch in Mississippi into a sanctuary for bees, in a bid to help counter the insects' decreasing population. 

According to Forbes on Wednesday, the 81-year-old actor has imported 26 bee hives into his ranch from Arkansas, and has been growing bee-friendly magnolia trees and lavender to encourage them to visit his home.

The Shawshank Redemption star began his journey as a beekeeper in 2014, and has been working to feed the bees sugar and water to help them.
