Inaugural World Bee Day - May 20th 2018: Local Knowledge Available on Native Bees and the Northern Beaches Beekeepers Club - World Bee Day was declared by the UN General Assembly in December last year to raise awareness of the importance of bees and apicultural products; which is pretty much everything we eat. The First World Bee Day will be celebrated around the world on May 20th and in Australia with Canberra hosting some great events which are sure to spread nation wide in coming years. Slovenia proposed the celebration of World Bee Day in the month of May, when bees in the northern hemisphere are most active – here such activity takes place during September although you can do things right now to ensure a future for our bees.
