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 is an Australian 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, education and conservation initiatives that strengthen bees, improve pollination efficiency and increase food security and ecosystem health.
