Bees Conservation & Agriculture

Volunteering with animals

 
 

What´s it about?

OUR MISSION is to save the bees and raise awareness by public speaking in the community including schools, bee tours, and creating bee gardens. Today in various places of our planet the conservation of different animal species has become extremely important. Leave a positive mark by engaging in the protection of the most important insect in the world, THE BEE!

Our project originated as a family project in the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Its purpose is to provide a much needed protection for bees due to a decrease in population.  Bees find their home in hollow walls, rooftops, patios, backyards, and of course trees! The sharing of their habitat with humans has yield for their extermination.

Our project is dedicated to safely removing the bee colonies
with the purpose of preserving and protecting all species of bees including…

  • honey bees

  • bumble bees

  • solitary bees

  • and all the native sting less bees.
