Why we are doing this
The aim of the project is to highlight conservation efforts for bees species around Kerry. It also serves as a way of building awareness of the importance of and endangered status of many of our native bee species. With habitat loss a serious threat to our native bees, and with many of them threatened or endangered, we want to ensure the future survival of our bees and other pollinators.
Sites that welcome visitors have included GPS coordinates. If you are visiting any habitat populated by bees please take all necessary precautions. This includes being cognisant of the swarming and wild nature of bees. Visitors to any sites do so at their own risk. Inclusion on this site is for information/educational purposes only.
If you want to know more about what we’re doing, or if you want to be included as part of the Highway please get in touch. This facility is open to those caring for wild bee species (bumble & solitary bees) as well as ‘domestic’ honey bees kept for honey and wax harvesting.
