West Coast Honeybee Restoration Project

     The Pollination Conservation Society supports a major project with the goal of restoring populations of managed honeybees on the West Coast of the US.  Working with scientists and beekeepers, this project is a down to earth effort to provide disease and parasite resistant queens and colonies for beekeepers in key pollination corridors along the west coast region.  In support of this project, the project team hopes to develop a network of research apiaries throughout the region.  Our goal is for these apiaries to be the central lifeline for re-population efforts.  These apiaries will also become centers for research into the threats affecting honeybee populations including Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), parasites, diseases, GMO plants, and pesticides.
     We hope to build on the success for this project to expand the program to other regions throughout North America and around the world.
