Part of the role of the National Beekeepers’ Association of New Zealand (NBA) is to make sure the public and the policymakers understand the issues their members – and kiwi bees – face.
I’ll be working with the NBA to help generate awareness of the vitally important role of the honeybee and what we can do to help them survive.
The NBA is currently working on a project to establish for the first time an accurate understand of the scale of losses that beekeepers are suffering in New Zealand, and what’s causing bees to die. This will help beekeepers determine the most effective action to help encourage and support bee populations.
