Abstract

The mass production of honey and the use of neonicotinoid pesticides has posed a threat to the world’s bee population. This sudden declination of bees has presented a threat to the World’s natural botanical environment. Small bee sanctuaries have been established throughout the country, but the public lacks education on this issue. It is essential to educate the public and take initiative towards bee preservation and rehabilitation since society relies on bees to pollinate over 90% of our crops. API (Anthophila Preservation Initiative) is a non-profit organization that strives to provide bees with a private, natural environment to restore the bee population. With public reach being a key component to our venture’s success, API will include informational programs to local schools and visitors. API plans to aid bees and help bring awareness of their importance in our communities. API focuses on providing resources to a wide diversity of bees to achieve a natural balance between different endangered breeds. Our main goals are to raise numerous species of bees in a safe, comfortable environment where they can thrive and flourish as well as provide proper education on the real issues with bees. API also provides curriculums, workshops, and programs for youth of all ages to learn about the fascinating roles of bees. Many key partners to API would include wildlife preservations and other preservation sanctuaries to act as hosts for bees and provide the public with our unique programs. API focuses on the 15th UN sustainable development goal, life on land. Bees are the foundation of all botanical life and in order to keep our forests and farms healthy, the bee population should be accounted for.
