Hello Honey Bee Fans!
The Bee Informed Partnership is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose sole goal is to provide up-to-date honey bee health data to beekeepers so that they may better manage their bees. We also welcome and encourage the distribution of this information – as many of you have done – to educate others about the challenges facing honey bees and the ways that we can help solve them. We remain an independent and unbiased source of honey bee health data, providing regionally-specific information to beekeepers, researchers and policymakers nationwide. But now, we need your help. Please consider donating here now!
We house and maintain the largest publicly available honey bee health database in the United States. As such, we need financial help from the community to help fund our efforts.
This month we are raising funds to support our work. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $15,000 by December 7th but we’d sure love to surpass that!
Your funds will directly support the major pillars of BIP’s research and outreach program: 1) Our interactive national Colony Loss Map; 2) Providing an early warning system to beekeepers regarding seasonal and regional threats to honey bee health through the Sentinel Apiary Project; 3) Evaluating annual colony mortality causes found in our interactive National Management Survey Tool; and 4) Providing the infrastructure to support and manage the APHIS State National Honey Bee Pest and Disease survey. You can also stay up to date on all that we are doing by subscribing to our blogs here.
Thank you for your support – ANY amount helps!
The Team at Bee Informed Partnership
