David Attenborough is urging you to 'save the bees', according to the UK's CoventryLive.

The legendary broadcaster has urged Brits to make a difference with a cute teaspoon gesture.

The 92-year-old documentary maker took to his Facebook to warn that humans would only have four years to live if bees became extinct.

"If you find a tired bee in your home, a simple solution of sugar and water will help revive an exhausted bee."

Fans were quick to try it - and they gave good feedback to the Blue Planet documentary maker.

"I helped one last week with a drink of sugar water, it had a good drink, sat for a minute and then flew off," one wrote.

Another added: "This one felt so much better after we gave it some sugar water that it had a little dance before it flew!"

The post has since racked up 58,000 likes and has been shared over 200,000 times.
