For most Australians the only connection they have with insects is from the wrong end of the spray can. Bees are essential members of our ecological communities and their communities are under threat worldwide. Help support local native bee populations by sponsoring a hive today!
Why sponsor a native bee hive?
Thousands of nests of Australian native bees are destroyed each year because so few people are aware of the beauty and value of these fascinating insects. Australia has over 1,500 species of native bees which live in a wide varieties of nest sites. Their nests can often be accidentally destroyed through landscaping, gardening and land clearing activities.
Native bees play an important role in Australia's biodiversity by being effective pollinators of many indigenous flowering plants. They have also been found to be effective pollinators of many agricultural crop species and are therefore integral to food security, particularly in light of the threats of honey bees.
A bee house is also a science class in a box, affording a perfect vehicle for lessons in biology, environment and nutrition for both schools and the local community.
