The world lacks real-time information on the state of global biodiversity. The world also lacks information on the status and trends for most pollinator species in most parts of the world.

The World Bee Project Global Hive Network © is a globally coordinated honeybee monitoring initiative designed to create value at regional and global scales.

The World Bee Project Global Hive Network© will generate unprecedented new data about honeybee health and its relationship with varying environments, weather patterns, forage, diseases, parasites, predator species and pesticides. The World Bee Project will be able to share this new life transforming knowledge directly with hundreds of millions of smallholder farmers and beekeepers around the world.

By combining data from sensors in The World Bee Project Global Hive Network© and world-leading bee research, with AI and Oracle Cloud computing technology, we will generate and access new insights into the links between varying environments, hive conditions, honey bee health and the pollination services bees provide to agriculture. The new insights can help inform and implement global actions to improve pollinator habitats, create more sustainable ecosystems, and improve food security and nutrition, and livelihoods.

Technology is changing the game for conservation efforts. Using cloud-based technology, The World Bee Project is going to have a truly global, real-time view of the population help for the first time. This will arm researches with the information needed to work with the governments and beekeepers to help reduce the decline in honey bee populations.

Protecting the invaluable contributions of nature to people will be the defining challenge for decades to come.
