Bees Unlimited is not a Business.
Bees Unlimited is a Service.
Bees Unlimited is dedicated to disseminating appropriate instruction and education in and about beekeeping, sustainable honey-harvesting, and honey and wax processing that can be replicated at little or no cost to the individuals involved. By demonstrating an income-generating alternative to bee killing we seek to assist those who benefit most from protecting Asian honeybees.
Bees Unlimited is against the importation and use of exotic species into Cambodia such as European Honeybees, (Apis mellifera), and works strictly with indigenous honeybee species, particularly Apis dorsata, Giant Honeybees.
Those We Seek To Educate:
- Marginalized families motivated to try something different;
- Opportunistic farmers/fishermen keen to learn more about the natural resource they occasionally exploit and/or destroy—honeybees;
- Traditional honey-hunters struggling to make ends meet in a dying profession.
How You can Help
Explore Information: Browse our bee pages, and websites like www.ibra.org.uk, www.bee-craft.com, and www.beesfordevelpment.org, for example, to learn more about beekeeping and the opportunities and challenges of traditional honey-hunting and sustainable harvesting in the developing world.
Support Sustainable Honey-harvesters: Contact us to buy pure, organic, wild honey from sustainable honey-harvesters. Honey-hunting is a dying profession, and sustainable honey-hunters are a rare 'breed' in Cambodia; so, by purchasing their honey, you show them that breaking away from their traditional 'one-cut-take-all' method of harvesting, was a giant step in the right direction.
Arrange a Village Bee Tour with Us: If you are in the Siem Reap/Angkor Wat area, join us to meet the villagers whose lives we seek to enhance, and explore the unique biodiversity of the rafter beekeeping community, with its unique orchids, fascinating pitcher plants, and more. Well off the typical tourist track, this opportunity of a life-time is one tour not to be missed.
