Honeycut X The Bee Conservancy

Save The Bees!

Have you met Bea?

She’s a Blue Orchard Mason Bee trying to make it in the world and we want to share her adventure with classrooms and community groups across the country. Bee A Buddy is an exciting new comic from The Bee Conservancy that follows our buzzy heroine through a narrative of friendship and overcoming challenges with a focus on bee biodiversity. This bee-utifully illustrated book is a fantastic way to learn unique traits of different bee and pollinator species!.

This Giving Tuesday, we need your help.

Because many classrooms in underserved areas lack access or funds for new educational materials, we want to distribute copies of Bee A Buddy to students and community organizations for free.

For every $5 you donate, TBC will be able to print and ship one copy of Bee A Buddy. Our goal today is to distribute 1,000 copies in 2024.Can you help us meet (and break) our goal for Giving Tuesday?

Use the button below to designate your contribution towards our Bee A Buddy Campaign and bring free materials to students who are excited to learn more about pollinators and the importance they play in our world.

Ted Talk: Maria Spivak

Why bees are disappearing

Honeybees have thrived for 50 million years, each colony 40 to 50,000 individuals coordinated in amazing harmony. So why, seven years ago, did colonies start dying en masse? Marla Spivak reveals four reasons which are interacting with tragic consequences. This is not simply a problem because bees pollinate a third of the world’s crops. Could this incredible species be holding up a mirror for us?

Red-Laird transformed a childhood fascination with honeybees into an impassioned career as a research scientist, educator, conservationist and revered beekeeper. From her first taste of freshly harvested honeycomb at age three, through the undergraduate research program at the University of Montana, she cultivated the art and science of beekeeping. Today, Red-Laird is based in Ashland where she educates the next generation of honeybee keepers through her Kids and Bees program and the Southern Oregon University Beekeeping Club. She also helps farmers and other land managers conserve bee habitat.
