The Lancashire Black Bee project was established in 2015 and is being delivered through “The Bee Centre”. We currently run 12 breeding apiaries across Lancashire with a further two in North Wales. We have now established a BIBBA group to help promote and support the goals of the Association alongside the wider remit of The Bee Centre.
The goals of our work in Lancashire include:-
- To develop a robust and widely distributed, near-native bee stock across Lancashire
- To reduce the importation of bees into Lancashire
- To encourage Lancashire beekeepers to use localised, near-native bees
