Sponsor a bee
Sponsor a bee is a social campaign of symbolic sponsorship, with which you contribute to the survival of bees, our great pollinators, and to the development of the Biosphere of the natural park of O Courel, where, among other species, they coexist with bears.
As you know, traditional and sustainable beekeeping has always been in our DNA, not in vain, David Corral, our founder, was a strong advocate of the protection and conservation of our natural heritage, which is why ADEGA already awarded him the OSIXENO prize in 2006 for his actions in conservation and defense of nature and the integration of the bears.
And despite the many damages that we suffer every year due to the action of the brown bear in our beehives, for us it is very important to protect them. Therefore, we have signed a collaboration agreement with the Brown Bear Foundation, to which we donate 1€ of your share for each sponsorship.
Where does your collaboration go?
The destruction of our bees is a real food crisis, they are our great pollinators, almost 90% of flowering plants and about 75% of the world’s food crops depend on pollination.
The situation is worrying, the invasion of the varroa mite and the velutina mite which, in addition to feeding on bees, ants and butterflies, affects crops as it also feeds on fruit, is destroying our bees and damaging vineyards and orchads of apples, plums, grapes…, against these pests we take action all year round, but they eat land every day of the year. With your sponsorship you will help the actions of control and cleaning of harmful pests.
On the other hand, the brown bear that disappeared from the territory of O Courel in the nineteenth century, is gradually returning naturally. With your contribution you will also help the Brown Bear Foundation in its project of settlement of the brown bear in O Courel, to ensure quality habitats and promoting coexistence between bears and human activities.
So, by sponsoring a bee, or as many as you want, you protect not only them, but also the bear and the rest of the species of this unique environment, collaborating in the protection of Biodiversity and world food security.
