Why is Bee Saviour Behaviour a thing?
Bee populations are declining and we believe that inspiring an active community of urban Bee Saviour Citizens will have a positive influence on this worrying trend.
55% of the worlds population lives in cities. We believe by increasing the connection that city dwellers feel with the their local bees we will raise awareness of the need for action and create a community actively responding to their disappearance.
Our unique first offer is the Bee Saviour Card which allows the people of the world to carry sugar solution in a wallet or purse. The act of reviving an exhausted bee may not make a ground breaking change to bee decline however what we believe is that the more people feel connected to the bees in their neighbourhood the more they will want to actively respond to their disappearance. What we know is that reviving an exhausted bee is a magical experience that you’ll want to share with others!
