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.

On my way to collect Rose Caulfield Photography to work yesterday I saw a commotion on the side of the busy Melbourne road. Rose managed to stop this echidna from getting run over. Fortunately we had beekeeping gloves in the car.
Drivers be careful this time of year there is a lot of wildlife on the move on the #mornintonpeninsula .

For others watching this. Echidnas live on road verges. This echinda isn't tame this is stressful. Move off roads, but don't relocate echidnas please. They may have a puggle nearby and moving it may put both in more danger.

Salt-seeking bees

Unsurprisingly, given bees' need for nectar, the insects' feet are incredibly sensitive to sugar. But they're even more attuned to salt. The bees need salt for their own metabolic processes, and to carry back to their hives to help larvae develop. Thus, homeowners' saltwater pools attract bees. The first-ever investigation of the honeybee ability to taste with their front feet may explain a persistent bee mystery: Why they visit saltwater swimming pools.Saltwater swimming pools don't require chlorine or other chemicals, but they attract honeybees en masse. Now, scientists find that bees have taste receptors on their feet that are so sensitive to salt, that they even dwarf the bees' capacity to taste sweets. They might just sense, with the tips of the legs, the presence of the salty solution and then decide to land. The solution to stop bees going into pool is to create an alternative safe place for bees to drink. #savethebees

My friend Nicholas is testing the cannabis resin collected by #bees as #propolis for healing benefits. 
There are humans laws and natural laws . Fortunately some of us are born with a spiritual immune system and have the courage to flaunt laws that are not in the community's interest. The best #Marijuana is outdoor #organic. In many lush areas around Australia courageous people are growing bush #Weed to medicate and relax other Australians. Science is catching up to wisdom of mystiques. The parliament has just legalised marijuana for medical use. 
Death by marijuana intoxication has never occurred unlike common prescribed pharmaceuticals such as benzodiazepines #Xanax #vallium and #serepax. This group of prescribed drugs kill more Australians than all illicit drugs combined including ice. We hear little about this in the media. Is this because big pharmaceutical makes so much money out of misery. 
#Marijuana like #alcohol should be used in moderation and avoided by adolescents. Side effects include chronic laughter, heightened sexual experience , paranoia , hunger.
