Beehives for Elephants – A Buzzing Defence, Feb. 6 2015 @ Forty Thieves Beach Bar

Beehives Quiz

Innovative beehive fences have helped communities in Kenya to successfully protect crops from elephants.
Scientists found the hives to be a very effective barrier; elephants turned away from them in 97% of their attempted raids. Conservationists suggest that elephants’ natural fear of bees could settle ongoing conflicts. The hives’ honey also produced additional profits for farmers and protect the endangered Elephants.

SHIMBA SUPPORT GROUP’ initiative is to build 30 Beehive’ fences in the Kwale district. The project is estimated at KES 150,000/=. The Shimba Support Group need your support to protect farmer’s field and the elephants at once.

Teams of 6 maximum, KES 1,000 per team
A BBQ dinner will be served at KES 1,000 per person (30% goes to the project)
Pre-registrations appreciated, please contact Esme

Date and Time: Friday 6th February – 19:30 registration – 20:00 start
