CANADIAN HONEY COUNCIL
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 Honey Council and their “Save our Bees”initiative.
“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.”
The Canadian Honey Council is the voice of the beekeeping industry in Canada. Your donation will provide funding for the “Save Our Bees” campaign and will go to the Canadian Bee Research Fund, a charity that is a joint project of the Canadian Honey Council and the Canadian Association of Professional Apiculturists (CAPA), which provides funding for bee research in Canada. Some recent research projects include studies relating to pesticides, mites and bee resistance mechanisms. For a full list of projects funded by the Canadian Bee Research fund click here.
We hope that you will support the “Save Our Bees” initiative and help fund important research before it’s too late! We have also made it easier for you to donate when you buy Beekeeper’s Naturals Propolis Spray by giving you the option to donate $1 upon check out. Every little bit counts and can make a real difference.
