The National Honey Board and Project Apis M. announced that they have created a “Bee Health Collective” website after collaborating with several industry organizations.
The website will contain information compiled by the organizations about honey bee health, scientific research, the beekeeping industry and how bees relate to agriculture and food.
“We’re thrilled to partner with several like-minded organizations on this important initiative," Margaret Lombard, National Honey Board CEO, said in a release. "By joining together as a community, we have the ability to make a real impact on the accessibility of data about the health and sustainability of honey bees and their impacts on the nation's food supply.”

It will also feature bee health metrics in the form of infographics, images and writing, as well as a bee bulletin board that shows job postings and funding opportunities in the industry.
