Self Sustaining Networks

Honeybees are not only an indicator species and a gauge of the health of the wider ecosystem, as they are intimately connected to the vast surrounding landscape of their hive (8,000 acres), but they also take on the role of a trans-species catalyst for procreation and balance of large parts of the biosphere. As a keystone species, honeybees require heightened protection and safeguarding and should be a fundamental consideration within any biodiversity plans and conservation efforts.

One cardinal focus of our work lies in the research, survey, and rehabilitation, and protection of wild, un-managed honeybees (apis mellifera). The categorization of wild unmanaged honeybees as a cosmopolitan species is complex. As a neo-native and naturalized species alike, wild, unmanaged honeybees have become a co- constituent of diverse pollinator assemblages in the US.
