Bees for Development Journal

Education about bees.

Bees for Development Journal is our quarterly magazine with readers in over 130 countries. It is a valuable source of information about apiculture worldwide, providing unique news and views.

Donate to our charity so we can send the Journal free to beekeepers and schools in developing countries. Please donate so we can provide training and education about bees.

The Journal includes practical advice on beekeeping and management techniques, future events (including training programmes) and reports from beekeeping projects and associations worldwide. It provides an avenue into the beekeeping network which is important for information exchange and making new contacts.

For example, in the June 2013 issue (20 pages) the contents include:-

  • Practical Beekeeping - good beekeeping practice
  • Beekeeping Economics
