The University of Guelph Honey Bee Research Centre (HBRC);
As honey bee health has declined significantly in the past decade, the HBRC's role in bee health research has become increasingly important and recognized. The general public and all levels of government are now well aware of the importance of honey bees and are engaged in learning more about pollinators and in initiating projects to address the many factors affecting bee health. The interest in the hobby or profession of beekeeping has also surged exponentially. The HBRC enables access to apiculture courses and many other educational experiences for university students and the wider community.
Ongoing research and education are needed to support these critical members of the ecosystem. That's why the new and expanded HBRC is so important.
With your help, honey bee research and education will thrive for generations to come. For more information on how you can support the new HBRC:
