Responsible tourism: Bee Conservation in Bali

Environment

WILDLIFE
Our honey bee farm is located in the rural area of West Bali, far from the hustle and bustle of tourist attractions. The village is boasting with tall trees, farms, and groves where the beehives are cultivated. Unlike many farms that put their beehives in neat rows, we trust our farmers to place the hives wherever they see fit within their farms –on a tree, in their front yard, or near the chilli garden. Rather than adjusting our environment to fulfill our needs, we adjust to our environment to ensure the bees’ wellbeing. By placing the hives in strategic points in the area, they are able to roam free and pollenate as many plants as they can, as well as get the nutrients they need for their sustainability!

ENERGY
The honey bee farms in our community consist of small, family-run businesses with limited power and machine resources. Therefore, its byproducts are processed manually or using simple, traditional methods, which are more ecologically sustainable.

Community

A FAIR DEAL
Our beekeeping farm empowers local youths and farmers by providing job opportunities as well as helping them improve their economic condition.

Through training and workshops, honey bee farmers can learn new ways to create various byproducts from their resources, as well as to package and market it in a way that is both sustainable and lucrative.

We hire local representatives as dedicated facilitators to assist the volunteers' transition into their life at the project site.

CAMPAIGNING FOR A CHANGE
Our honey bee conservation effort also extends to raising public awareness about the importance of bees in our daily lives.

We engage with other communities and encourage them to be ‘friends of the bees’ by introducing them to its byproducts and how it’s made, as we did in the Honey Tasting with the Bali International Women’s Association last year.

We also encourage the involvement of young people by holding a workshop with Bali Island School, in which the students then create posters and artwork about their newfound knowledge of bees.

This issue has also been taken into the Global Issue Network Conference 2017 in Hong Kong, where our Bee Ambassador presented about the decline of bees to students and teachers from all over the world as well as raise funds by selling beeswax candles at her ‘Save the Bees’ booth.
