BeeGAP has been developed to help raise awareness around declining bee populations, educate on the importance of bees & pollination and help kiwis encourage & add pollinators to their gardens.
BeeGAP contains a wealth of information, articles, FAQs, help and support. BeeGAP aims to help with education around pollination, bumble & leafcutter bees plus much more.
Bee-a-voice - learn more and help spread the word to millions of kiwis throughout New Zealand. "Food crops need pollination, pollination needs bees, and bees need us!"
As a nation, the decline in our bee populations presents itself as a very real issue and a threat to the future pollination of our gardens and food supplies. These declines have been caused largely by changing agricultural practices and urban encroachment on the countryside, and now more than ever, there is a need to look to alternative bee species.
In a nutshell, we need more bee pollinators to save our food supply and here at BeeGAP we recognise the importance of addressing this problem. The solution rests with increasing the solitary & native bee population.
Bumble bees are one of the best pollinators, better than honeybees and can easily be introduced and encouraged in to your garden.
We're passionate about future of bees in New Zealand, and encouraging kiwi gardeners to encourage more native bees to their backyards.
Inviting leafcutter bees in to your garden is one way to help increase their population and help ensure their survival.
