Apis Arborea – a nonprofit organization promoting the restoration of apian networks.
Over the course of the last hundred years, the health of the bees has been challenged on many levels – conventional beekeeping with its mechanical and alienated approach, increasing exposure to pollution (pesticides, electro smog), a dramatic shift of the entire landscape and worlds ecosystem (loss of habitat, climate crisis), the introduction of the varroa mite, and the spiritual crisis of the human heart.
The challenges to the well-being of the bees only reflect our own struggle in our striving for health and happiness. A systemic approach is needed to prevent an unfolding of extinction cascades.
Apis Arborea is a nonprofit that promotes the restoration of apian networks. Apis Arborea combines cutting-edge research with ancient and traditional ways of apiculture, in particular the craft of the “Zeidler”, who used to take care of bees in living trees. The principles of Wilding are a tool to embrace and foster self-willed ecological processes and to create conservation models for the Anthropocene.
