About Bee Aware Month

Apiculture New Zealand has run Bee Aware Month in September for the past 12 years.  This annual education campaign is all about sharing with New Zealanders some basic things everyone can do to help improve bee health.  We want to encourage Kiwis to plant more trees for bees, to use garden sprays safely or not at all and to buy local honey.

Every year we share resources with schools, community groups, councils and bee lovers so they can learn more about bees and take actions to improve bee health.  We also run a schools competition and a social media campaign aimed at educating Kiwis about bees, beekeeping and honey.
