KARMA Honey Project
Researchers have discovered that in Puerto Rico, the gentle Honey Bee and African Killer Bee have become friends. So much so, that there's a new bee in town, called the Africanized Honey Bee. This unique bee boasts an impressive ability to pollinate and produce honey, a calm and collected demeanor, and the ability to resist many of the pests that have plagued the Honey Bees as of lately. Could this be the key to the survival of the bee species? We think so!
Unfortunately, Hurricane Maria wiped out not only the bees, but also the plants and flowers that they fed from. It's been a slow process in rebuilding the populations, but things are heading in the right direction. With your help, we can plant pollinator gardens that the bees can collect pollen from, create new bee hives across the island, educate the youth and locals on the importance of this particular type of bee, and most importantly: create jobs.
