a safer place for pollinators

How can I make my school, community group or business Bee-Friendly?

Bees of all species, as well as other insects, are declining in numbers because of the increased use of certain agricultural chemicals, the destruction of their natural habitat and the accidental importation of diseases and parasites.

Bees can form the basis of projects that take children deep into the natural world. Bees can reference many school subject areas, including:

  • Design and Technology - structure of honeycomb; construction of nest; hive design
  • Geography - distribution of bee species
  • Biology - evolution and adaptation to climate types; colony lifecycle; genetics; metamorphosis; pollination; enzyme activity in honey;
  • History - bees in the development of civilization; beekeeping in ancient Egypt and Greece
  • Mathematics - geometry of honeycomb; population statistics
