Bee Aware Month

Bees make up a critical part of Wellington’s ecosystem. We’re trying to do our part in Te Whanganui-a-Tara to protect these vital pollinators.

Bee a hero for the bees this month 1 - 30 September Bee Aware Month

Did you know that in New Zealand there are 28 species of native bees and 13 species of introduced bees? They play an important role in pollinating our flora, providing us beautiful plants to look at and delicious kai to eat.

Every September, Wellington City Council and Apiculture NZ (ApiNZ) invite the whole community to get involved and help raise awareness about the importance of bees for our economy, environment and food production systems.
