Thanks to the generosity of our supporters we have been able to engage in publications of various kinds and to support others' wonderful endeavours on behalf of the bees. This has included the production of films, the funding of research into pesticides, encouraging re-wilding activities across the country and abroad, and helping artists whose work is directed at raising  the profile of the bees.We have also been able to travel to attend events and conferences to represent wherever possible our approach to bees in public settings.

Our involvement in the inspiring new Journal for Bee-Centered Beekeeping, Natural Bee Husbandry, has considerably widened our outreach; we are delighted with the new forms of working together that have arisen from this. 

We engage in sustained public relations work on behalf of the bees through social media and actively maintain an informal worldwide network of bee guardians.

Our continued work on our website means that it remains an unequalled resource for uncompromising bee-centered advocacy and support. In this way we are able to make a substantial contribution to validating an approach to bees that is closely orientated by the ways bees live in the wild.

Whilst the bulk of this work is carried out by a small number of trustees on a voluntary basis, we are much strengthened in our resolve by the heart-warming support of others, financial and otherwise. Thank you!

We would like to thank Elka de Wit and her company 34.4º  for generously supporting the Trust’s efforts by sponsoring a Freedom Hive which is now reserved for exhibitions and conferences.
