Protecting Pollinators,
People & the Planet

Innovation at the Service of Bees

The World Bee Project CIC is the first private initiative in the world that remotely monitors bees to research the pollinator and pollination crisis from a global perspective. It supports, connects and amplifies new technologies and scientific study to improve the health and wellbeing of bees and other pollinators.

Innovative Data Driven Solutions

The World Bee Project is developing data driven innovative solutions that address pollinator health challenges in cities as well as in smallholder farms and agriculture and food supply chains.

We Need Bees

Over 75% of the nutritious food we eat depends on pollination. Pollination sustains global food security, crop production, farmer livelihoods, wild plant diversity, ecosystem balance, healthy soils and clean air.

Connecting Hives, Connecting Lives

The World Bee Project uses Artificial Intelligence (AI), data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT), and works with local communities and global organisations to merge social, environmental and economic benefits to positively impact the future of Pollinators, People, and the Planet.

The Bees Need Us

Intensive farming, harmful pesticides, overpopulation, urban sprawl, loss of floral habitats, deforestation and climate change are all placing devastating pressures on pollinators. We address the need to improve understanding of the varying pressures on bees in different regions of the world.

Mission

Our mission is to blend Artificial Intelligence (AI) and cutting edge computing technology with world leading bee research to safeguard global pollinator populations.

Vision

Our vision is to deliver state of the art knowledge directly to the hundreds of millions of smallholder farmers around the world to enhance the contribution of pollinators to food security, farmer livelihoods and national economies. The World Bee Project’s greater vision is to place the natural world at the heart of public policy and enshrine environmental protection in national constitutions.

“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 bee population health for the first time. This will arm researchers with the information needed to work with governments and beekeepers to help reduce the decline in honey bee populations.”
