In the world there is a population of 20,000 species of bees and approximately 25% have disappeared according to the study by Argentine biologists Eduardo Zattara and Marcelo Aizen, from the National University of Comahue (Bariloche) and the data obtained from the Biodiversity Information Center.Bees pollinate 75% of the world

Challenge

The problem of worldwide bee declivity is due to multiple factors, including pesticide use, loss of natural habitats, the spread of disease, and climate change. This decline in bee populations has also been observed in the Ramsar Wetland in La Cocha, Paso Narino, Colombia where bees are vital for the pollination of crops, native plants and high mountain forests that protect the water in the lagoons.

Solution

The project seeks to create the first sanctuary and education center for the protection of bee life in southern Colombia by promoting methods of conservation of the ecosystems and the bees that inhabit it. It will be a shelter for the relocation of bee swarms that are rescued from urban and rural areas around the city of Pasto. The educational center will have adequate spaces for technical training on the protection of bee life. Your donations will make this possible.

Long-Term Impact

By helping to increase the bee population, the project can improve crop and plant pollination in the Ramsar Wetland and other areas affected by bee declines, which will produce a positive impact on food production and overall ecosystem health. In addition, the project will help raise awareness among the Colombians and promote community participation in the conservation of bees, their natural habitat, and water care. We will share our experience with beekeepers around the world.
