Building Beehives for Bushfire-Affected Communities

We recently teamed up with a member of the Amateur Bee Keeping Association to build 60 beehives for the south coast beekeepers who lost hundreds of hives in the recent Australian bushfires.

Bees as pollinators are a huge part of our ecosystem and are responsible for about a third of the food we eat. The hives we built out of plywood are small temporary hives called Nucleus Hives. They are used to split colonies to help repopulate the environment.

We called on team members, family, and friends and held a working bee to build the hives in the MNR workshop. What a great day and a great way to help the south coast communities!
