Hurricane Maria - PR Beekeepers

On 20 September 2017 Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico. One of the untold stories is the devastation to Puerto Rico's biology - specifically the unique and critical population of honeybees that serve as the linchpin of Puerto Rico's agriculture. Severe damage has occurred to bee foraging and nectaring plants, to hives, and to beekeeper livelihoods.

This is the kind of crisis that is overlooked by most institutional rescue missions. We are seeking funds for beekeeping supplies to rebuild damaged hives and restoring functional bee populations. Such specialized supplies can be purchased in the continental US and shipped to US Puerto Rico where governmental agencies and professional bee biologists can target delivery. Funds will be used to purchase hives boxes, frames, foundation for bee honeycomb construction and pollen packs to feed bees.
