Bees without Borders

January 11, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am PST


Bees without Borders is a collaborative project of FreeTheBees (Suisse), Honey Bee Wild (Luxembourg) & Apis Arborea (USA). The language of the events can be German, English, or French (depending on the topic and presenters).

Our guest will be Bigna Zellweger from Switzerland. She lives in the small mountain village of Tenna in the pristine Safiental. She is a qualified beekeeper and zoologist as well as a companion for the dying. People and animals – especially bees – enrich her life very much. She is currently setting up a Zeidler project in Tenna. Honeybees have developed various defense strategies against pathogens during their millions of years of evolution. Many of them work thanks to the honey bees’ social way of life. What do these strategies look like, what does the natural habitat, the tree cavity in the forest, contribute to the bees’ health and why does our current way of life counteract many of these developments?  This presentation will be held in German language, recorded, and made available on our YouTube channel. 

Access to the conference is free of charge. Sign up here to receive the link and be informed about our next events:
