Beekeeper soceities and groups

British Beekeepers Association (BBKA)

The British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) is a member based charity organisation. They offer lectures, courses, fund research, advise government, develop young beekeepers and represent the views of beekeepers all over the uk. It is a ‘hive’ of useful bee related information.

Bees for Development

Founded in 1993, Bees for Development was the first organisation to articulate the reasons why beekeeping is such a useful tool for alleviating poverty while helping to retain biodiversity. They focus on simple methods of sustainable beekeeping, always using local bees and local materials. They have helped many thousands of remote and poor families to earn essential income to meet their basic needs. They encourage farmers to make simple, low-cost beehives so that more people can harvest and sell honey, turning natural resources into sustainable livelihoods with great benefit for the wider environment.

National Bee Unit

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.

Their website provides a wide range of apicultural information for beekeepers, to help keep their colonies healthy and productive. It provides a wide range of beekeeping information, such as the activities of the NBU, honey bee related legislation, pests and diseases information which includes their recognition and control, publications, advisory leaflets and key contacts.
