Project to secure bee populations

A plan to map bee activity and protect South Australian pollination rates from climate change and varroa mites has been given a $600,000 boost with the launch of a new program in South Australia.

The State Government and the University of Adelaide have both contributed $300,000 to the project, which will be used to map bee activity and gain a better understanding of plants needed to sustain them.

This will be an important project for the South Australian Apple and Pear industry, which is heavily reliant on bees for pollination.
