Women beekeepers lead the way with elephant-friendly livelihoods

One of our partners, Wild Survivors, has launched a new initiative which combines two powerhouses for conservation: women and bees.

They are supporting women who live and farm along the elephant corridor boundary, with an apiary and Beekeeping Enterprise Hub.

Thirty-six women have formed a group ‘The NARI Women’s Beekeeping Group‘, aptly named after the Nari tree (Acacia xanthophloea), under which the new members have held their meetings, and formed the official group constitution. We are proud to be able to support positive programs like this.
