Protecting our honey bees
Our honey bee populations are decreasing at an alarming rate. With your help, we can protect our honey bees and our food security.
When most of us think of bees, we think of honey. But we often don't think about the vital role bees play in feeding us all.
The Wheen Bee Foundation
The Wheen Bee Foundation is Australia’s only registered not-for-profit charity that promotes awareness of the importance of bees for food security, and raises funds for research that addresses the national and global threats to bees.
We engage with all levels of government, the apiculture industry, bee reliant food industries, universities, research organisations and community. We fund vital strategic research and education initiatives that strengthen honey bees, improve pollination efficiency and increase food security.
Helping our bee populations thrive is vital to the wellbeing and future of all Australians. Fortunately, there are a few simple things you can do to help.
