CANADIAN BEE RESEARCH FUND
As we hope you can tell, we NEED to save the bees...and fast! If we don’t act soon our food supply and environment as we know it will drastically change. The current situation is unsustainable and we need to do everything in our power to make a difference. That is why we have chosen to support the Canadian Bee Research Fund.
“Honey bees are important pollinators of agricultural food crops and vital to our food supply. In Canada it is estimated that the value of honey bees to agriculture is $1.3 billion. All pollinators including honey bees in particular have suffered serious losses that are unsustainable. We need your help to save our pollinators.” - Canadian Honey Council
The Canadian Bee Research Fund is a charity that is a joint project of the Canadian Honey Council (the voice of the beekeeping industry in Canada) and the Canadian Association of Professional Apiculturists (CAPA). The CBRF provides funding for bee research in Canada. Some recent research projects include studies relating to pesticides, mites and bee resistance mechanisms.
