What would happen if we had no bees?
Agriculture as we know it
would collapse
A world without apples, mangoes strawberries and pears.
Many animals would become extinct.
Put simply,
it would be a global disaster.
Help us bee the cure.

Our Story

We all share a common issue: no bees = no life. Save the Bees Australia aims to empower others to create change in their world. Bees and humanity face a major challenge from insecticides, herbicides, industrial-scale monoculture food farming and habitat fragmentation. Together we can tackle these issues and Save the Bees.

What we Do

Save the Bees Australia’s aim is to unite like-minded people and raise awareness of the importance of bees and the plight that bees face. We are passionate advocates and educators who work with the community to change policy and personal action to support bee populations. Save the Bees Australia evolved from saving and rehousing problematic bee infestations to a social enterprise advocating for organic farming, nutrition, pollution, environment, education, wisdom, permaculture and love.

How you can Help

Donate

Your support allows us to keep Save the Bees Australia generating change. Please call us if you have any questions about your contribution. How do donations help?

Sign the Petition

Sign our petition to have imported honey labeled with country of origin. Help prevent corporations from confusing consumers by not adding country of origin on their imported honey products.

Personal Action

Learn how you can create a bee-friendly home and support bee-friendly practices.

Report a bee swarm

Do you have a swarm of bees that are bothering you?  Swarm Patrol puts you in contact with beekeepers who will house and relocate the colony.

Bees are at their most vulnerable and friendly when they swarm. Every bee in the hive knows the status of the hive’s health, production, and coherence. When the hive has ample honey and favourable weather conditions the colony will split to reproduce.  Swarming involves the oldest and wisest bees leaving their established location to scout out a new location.

I feel compelled to run for my local council. I love the Mornington Peninsula community and feel blessed and grateful to live here.

I live in Blairgowrie with my son Oscar. He is 11 and a student at Sorrento Primary. Oscar plays football and cricket for the Sorrento Sharks.

Savethebeesaustralia was founded here in 2013. By collaborating with community we have saved millions of bees.

During previous winters I enjoyed volunteering as a speaker at schools, kindergartens, libraries and clubs in the area. Bees thrive on the Mornington Peninsula and so can our community.

Last year when the DHS in conjunction with the shire attempted to experiment on the local community by spraying the Peninsula with toxic insecticide, I thought all our hard work was undone.

I feel encouraged that community said no, and together we put an end to this reckless, malignant plan. It gives me hope that if we galvanise, we can progress while still protecting our pristine environment.

As a resident I find it unfortunate the number of times the Shire has lacked wisdom. I am dumbfounded that rates for residents have been increased this year with us all suffering as a result of COVID 19, that it cost $200,000 to name the pool in Rosebud, that there is no bmx track for kids and that the Mornington Peninsula Shire still use huge amounts of the probable carcinogenic herbicide Glyphosate.

COVID-19 has given all of us a chance to rethink our future. I love being a patron at our cafe and restaurants and pubs. I have a great friendship with Rob Pitt from the Sorrento Hotel and Lia and Johan from the Peninsula pantry.

I want to collaborate with ethical minded business leaders in the area. I want to work along side local hero Josie Jones and other residents to co-create a shared vision for our Peninsula.

My friend Giles received the funniest phone call today from a TV production company who are looking for a beekeeper to feature in the next series of their show "Farmer wants a Wife". They got Giles number as I he had been on a TV cooking show with Hayden Quinn where we harvested honey from my Avalon Honey bees. Giles is a backyard beekeeper with 3 hives, a wife and 4 kids so this isn't the opportunity for him.

They did ask if he could put it out to any professional beekeepers I know and I've seen posts on here from some professionals so thought I'd ask if anyone is interested? Who's up for some fun and a chance to find love on reality TV? The production company are really keen to find a farmer outside the standard, cattle, sheep, crop farming, and the type, so as well as being an opportunity for you to find love you can also promote Australian beekeeping and Australian honey 🐝🍯😍

Update from Angela Brown the casting producer. Applications close next week so apply now on this website: www.farmerwantsawife.com.au

If you would like more information on the show & how the casting process works, Angela can be contacted at anytime on her mobile 0409540131. — feeling amused.

‘GROW YOUR OWN SUNSHINE' seeds for change

@montanalower - To me, sunflowers are the epitome of sunshine in plant form. I believe our mind is a garden and just like nature, we have our seasons to bloom, rest, weed the plants that don't serve us and plant more of what makes us THRIVE. Just like nature, our little bee friends can pollinate that happiness and spread it around the world leaving sunshine in their trail! I hope these sunflowers remind you there is always sunshine inside of you, even when it's stormy and dark. And when a little bee lands on their big blooming faces, you feel that we are all connected. Love Montana

Over 50 seeds within one packet. $7
