#BEETHESOLUTION - LET'S CREATE 200+ BEE SANCTUARIES IN THE US
Let's #BeeTheSolution together and create 200+ bee sanctuaries to pollinate, educate, and empower communities nationwide. Research is showing that 40% of bees worldwide are threatened. It's time to take action and help the bees!
One-third of the food we eat relies on bees for pollination.
But 1 in 4 bee species are headed toward extinction.
Together, We Can Step Up and #BeeTheSolution!
Help create 200+ bee sanctuaries nationwide!
Our national Sponsor-A-Hive program has been a sweeping success in bolstering bee populations, advancing environmental education, and supporting sustainable agriculture in vulnerable communities. We have created over 300 bee sanctuaries since 2009.
This year we are feeling ambitious: we want to create over 200 new bee homes!
Sponsor-A-Hive helps bolster bee populations, support sustainable agriculture, and advance environmental education. We strategically gift bees to urban farms, community gardens, schools, and other organizations that provide food to soup kitchens, senior citizen centers, and other vulnerable communities. These hives pollinate locally grown food and serve as bee sanctuaries as well as educational hubs in their communities. We provide training and support to ensure the bees thrive.
Have fun while helping save the bees! From hosting birthday fundraisers to having a lemonade stand, there are many ways that you can contribute to our cause by running a peer fundraiser!

From Us and Our Partners, Thank You for your Support!
Our bee sanctuaries help advance bee conservation and food justice around the US. We couldn't bring smiles (and bees) to communities without your support!
"Your bees are part of our Food Sovereignty Initiative to create a healthy local food system on our Pine Ridge Indian Reservation located in Southwest South Dakota. This Lakota reservation is a food desert and the closest grocery store is 90 miles away. The bees will pollinate a community garden planted and maintained by 10 high school students."
Thunder Valley CDC, South Dakota
"The Honeybee Conservancy bees will help us provide 2,200 pounds of fresh pesticide-free produce to our local food bank, located in a food desert."
