Honey bees are the world’s most important single species of pollinator in agricultural ecosystems and are critical to the future of the world’s 7.6 billion people and to the future of the planet.

The World Bee Project is developing a world-first approach to understand the declines of honey bee populations and how we can help protect them.

The World Bee Project Hive Network is a global honeybee monitoring initiative partnering with Oracle to blend cloud computing technology with world-leading bee research to help inform and implement global actions that contribute to improving biodiversity by creating more sustainable global ecosystems, and improving livelihoods, food security and nutrition.

To have value at national and global scales we place The World Bee Project Hive Network within the context of AI and biodiversity-based agriculture and ecosystems, and food production and livelihoods. 

The World Bee Project Hive Network system has the capacity to obtain huge amounts of data from its remotely monitored hive network by deploying commercially available hive monitoring sensors that have the capability of collecting among other inputs, audio, video, temperature, humidity and surrounding weather.

We aim to deliver new data and insights directly to the hundreds of millions of family farmers and beekeepers around the world to enhance the contribution of pollinators to food security, livelihoods and national economies.

Protecting the invaluable contributions of nature to people will be the defining challenge for decades to come. Policies, efforts, and actions at every level will only succeed when based on the best knowledge and evidence.

The World Bee Project Hive Network enhances the contribution of honey bees to food security, livelihoods and national economies.

The World Bee Project is developing a network of strategic partners and sponsors in different regions around the world through which it will roll out a global hive network that will provide unprecedented data about bee and ecosystem health.
