About Save the Bees Australia
Save the Bees Australia is a social enterprise focused on community education and advocacy for Australian native bees and European honeybees. The organisation was established in 2014 by Founder and CEO, Simon Mulvany, as a rescue mission to re-home honeybee infestations and save them from extermination. Since then the organisation has saved over 400 colonies and has evolved to become the voice of bees Australia wide.
We have a focus on educating children about the importance of pollination and the rolls indigenous bees play. We regularly attend schools and community groups and post informative content on our social channels.
The enterprise is often featured in mainstream media with special emphasis on the campaigns calling for pesticides to be banned. We also are leading the action against the suspicious importing of honey and honey adulteration mostly from China which is hurting Australian Beekeepers.
We are the voice for small businesses and apiarists with over 500,000 uses of our honey map which directly links consumers with local Australian beekeepers.
It is crucial that we help protect the native species and that we keep honey bees, respectfully and responsibly.
