Our Work

Using a data-based research approach, we link bees, biodiversity, and ecosystem health with beekeeper and smallholder farmer livelihoods. We create strategies and programmes and co-design and adaptively implement projects in partnership with local communities to provide measurable benefits for Pollinators, People, and the Planet. In parallel with our pollinator and environmental protection work, we are implementing our pioneering social programme, Celebrating the Right to Life, Food and Shelter for Women in Adversity.

Harnessing the power of bee-derived intelligence for solutions to wider issues of biodiversity, climate change, food security and human well-being, we focus on the interconnections between bees and people in the context of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
