About the project

Bees have been contributing to society in ways beyond belief for thousands of years.

Did you know that it’s thought bees are to thank for one in three mouthfuls of food we take? That revelations in bee behavioural studies are inspiring businesses to change their decision making processes? That they contribute invaluably to ecosystems around the world? That they’ve been worshipped in ancient history as the healers and givers of life? The list is endless.

This is why, as a journalism student passionate about wildlife, I’m using the opportunity of our final degree project to produce a radio documentary (targeted at Radio4 listeners) that I hope will¬†inspire any listeners/readers to get involved in the growing global movement to protect bees and their habitats.
