More than 4,000 bee species call the United States home. From honey bees to native species, these pollinators help make our food supply possible.
Thanks to pesticides, habitat destruction, and climate change, we're losing a critical link in our ecosystems. HSBF is working hard to protect bees across the world.
Beekeeping helps to lift people out of poverty in developing countries and has been used to aid veterans suffering from PTSD for over 100 years. HSBF supports efforts like these across the globe.
It's no secret America's bees need help. In recent years, America's beekeepers have lost 30 - 40% of honey bee colonies. Native bee populations world wide are dwindling, as are butterflies, moths, bats and other pollinators.
Improper pesticide use, loss of habitat, parasites and diseases, and climate change all contribute to the decline of these critical pollinators.
We meet people everywhere who want to help, but don't necessarily want to become beekeepers. We're here to show how you can help.
Help Save the Bees Foundation helps, inspires, and educates others about the fascinating nature of bees and pollinators, their vital importance to our planet and the human race, the challenges they face, and how we can help protect them.
We provide education, support for habitat conservation, and direct funding for individuals, organizations, and institutions who provide real world solutions to help protect bees and pollinators.
As we pursue the activities associated with our Mission, we are certain to achieve the perfect end result:
We envision a world where People, Bees and Produce live in a balanced and mutually harmonious relationship:
