The Welsh Beekeepers Association (WBKA) is the National Supporting organisation for beekeeping in Wales. As an Association we are affiliated to the WBKA. The WBKA host an Annual Beekeeping Convention in March each year.
The Bumblebee Conservation Trust was established because of serious concerns about the ‘plight of the bumblebee’
In the last 80 years our bumblebee populations have crashed. Two species have become nationally extinct and several others have declined dramatically.
Bumblebees are familiar and much-loved insects that pollinate our crops and wildflowers, so people are rightly worried. We have a vision to create a world where bumblebees are thriving and valued. Our mission is to increase the number and distribution of bumblebees. A growing number of committed supporters are helping our team of staff make a big difference.
BeeBase is the Animal and Plant Health Agency’s (APHA) National Bee Unit website. It is designed for beekeepers and supports Defra, Welsh Government and Scotland’s Bee Health Programmes and the Healthy Bees Plan, which set out to protect and sustain our valuable national bee stocks.
