The Eden Project is celebrating becoming a protected bee reserve for an important local honey bee by unveiling a new observation hive which will enable visitors see how these fascinating creatures live.
Eden is the fourth such reserve in Cornwall. This project was developed by B4, a Community Interest Company representing beekeepers, which works to conserve, protect and increase the population of these bees.
The European dark honey bee is the only honey bee that originates from the UK and it is uniquely adapted to environment in this country. Beekeepers often buy imported bees which are less well adapted to UK climates and have also introduced new pests and diseases to local honey bee colonies.
