#savelocalbees: COALITION FOR THE PROTECTION OF LOCAL BEES IN EUROPE
Environmental NGOs, local bee conservatories, nature organizations, researchers, supporters of traditional and sustainable beekeeping… All over Europe, we are working and campaigning for the protection of subspecies and local ecotypes of bees. We gathered under the motto #SaveLocalBees.
THIS INITIATIVE IS SUPPORTED BY:
SICAMM was founded in 1995 at Flekkefjord, Norway by beekeepers and scientists from Austria, Denmark, Germany, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, as an international association devoted to the protection of the European dark honeybee, Apis mellifera mellifera. Participation has since extended to most European countries.
