The B4 Project is a Community Interest Company representing a group of beekeepers whose aim is to protect the UK’s native honey bee, Apis mellifera mellifera.
Our purpose is to conserve, protect and increase the population of Apis mellifera mellifera, the European Dark Honey Bee (EDHB), by the fusion of science and beekeeping.
This will be achieved by:-
- Setting up reserves with like-minded beekeepers.
- Working closely with scientists to identify genetic purity of samples taken geographically.
- Informing the public about the EDHB.
- Influencing decision makers
