Welcome to Honey Bee Watch
Citizen Science to Study Free-Living Colonies
As a participant contributing data on honey bees, you help science to better understand the biological, behavioral, and environmental traits that favor survivorship among untreated and free-living colonies. With more than 10 species of honey bees around the world, Honey Bee Watch is a multi-year, global study that starts with a UK-based pilot focused on Western honey bees (Apis mellifera) and that will eventually expand in stages to new regions and include other Apis species.
Its aim is to increase scientific knowledge about these species, potentially leading to more sustainable beekeeping and land management practices as well as educational programs and conservation initiatives to inspire the wider public to act locally to protect threatened or endangered populations.
We appreciate your participation.
