Addo Bees

Personal message

Did you know that out of every 3 teaspoons of things that you eat, 2.7 of them depend on bees for their development and growth? As you most probably know, bees are seriously threatened here and internationally. The recent fires in the Southern Cape haven’t helped matters. Millions of bees died in the fires. I am launching a project in the Addo Elephant National Park to conserve bees in the area. The project will involve seven rangers and sundry management individuals who will be responsible for the success of the project. Pretty soon we should have about 3.5 million bees on our hands as a start up.

Our desire is to train and equip each ranger with the necesary kit as well as 10 hives to begin with. To this end we need 70 brood boxes in which the bees multiply, 140 supers in which the bees make honey, 70 steel mounting poles and brackets, wax foundation, and sundry tools. To achieve this we need R240K. This money is needed for setting up the infrastructure. Nobody will be paid for services provided. The rangers will receive their normal salaries.

Once this project is up and running it will become self-sufficient and as a result it will fund the roll-out of similar projects in other national parks.

I need help to make this happen. Please assist me by donating to my campaign.
