Ujubee Conservation is dedicated to the beauty of the bee’s world. All bees. The wild honeybees and the native solitary bees in their natural environments. 'Uju' means 'honey' in the Zulu language, but a taxonomist friend once described Ujubee as: when a person loves bees so much they cannot stop thinking about them, no doubt derived from the multitude meanings of 'honey'. We loved it as we could almost imagine a new species of people; ujubees.

Often when one thinks of bees, it is about hives and honey. But this is an agricultural perspective. The true wonderment of bees is their wildness and their interconnectedness to their ecology - their choice of natural nesting sites and the nest architecture; their use of plant resins for propolis walls and for their nest hygiene; their interaction with all other creatures; the richness and variety of the flora, the flowers they forage on and pollen explosions; their habitats; bee behaviour… and the people who love bees and the natural world.

Through our research we endeavour to learn from all species of bees in the wild, finding the extraordinary in the simple complexity of bees in the natural world. This is what we would like to share with you. By supporting us you will not only help us to make our films, but you will also help us to continue our research. You will become a part of our global bee conservation movement, a movement of 'ujubees', helping to safeguard bee biodiversity and ensuring that our natural world thrives.

Whenever we discover a new wild honeybee nest, the first thing we do is name it. It is then always referred to by its name. For your massive support which will bolster our research and continually power us to keep on searching and questioning and documenting our observations, we will name a wild honeybee nest after you or someone you nominate.
