World Bee Day

Save the Bees - World Bee Day Sticker

Did you know that Mayo 20th is World Bee Day?

Slovenia proposed that the United Nations (UN) proclaim 20 May as World Bee Day. On 20 December 2017, following three years of efforts at the international level, the UN Member States unanimously approved Slovenia’s proposal, thus proclaiming 20 May as World Bee Day.

The purpose of the www.worldbeeday.org website is to present the initiative and its implementation, raise awareness of the importance of bees and beekeeping, inform the public of major beekeeping events around the world and celebrate World Bee Day.

Check out our new page dedicated to the Park’s work on pollinators that includes bee survey and monitoring work, as well as creating and enhancing bee and other pollinator habitats at the Ballycroy Visitor Centre https://www.wildnephinnationalpark.ie/pollinators-in-the-park/
