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 pollination, providing us beautiful plants to enjoy 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.
Get involved in Bee Aware Month
2022 hosted a variety of events, from sunflower seed germination workshops to Busy Bee preschool storytimes.
Bee Aware Month 2023 will be from 1-30 September.
If you are interested in getting involved, please send your interest and ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or contact us on this email address if would like more information.
