My name is Akpoke C. Christian, a practicing beekeeper working with Ebonyi State Agricultural Development Programme in Nigeria as the Subject Matter Specialist (SMS) on AGROFORESTRY.
Considering the global positive effects of honeybees on rendering effective pollination services which multiply forest plants, I write to contribute that without honeybees our forest must vanish one day.
Bees can be used to monitor and sustain national forest by fully involving real practicing experienced beekeeper in the programme or team. They are to propagate the forest trees for their good and deploy bee hives/colonies within the forest perimeters which keep away forest enemies and pollinate forest trees.
I wish to refer to a project at Kenya where the honeybees was used to keep away the almighty giant elephant away from the areas they are disturbing human existence.
For effective result in this programme, honeybees are highly needed.
NO BEES! NO FOREST!
MORE BEES AND BEEKEEPERS!
MORE SUSTAINED AND CONSERVED FORESTS!!
