We protect the bees of New York State and across the US through
Conservation, Advocacy, Research, and Education.

Honey bees and wild pollinators exert a profound influence on the health of our local ecology and farm communities. By pollinating flowers they enrich the biodiversity and stability of ecosystems. Bees are some of Earth's most important organisms, yet they are threatened by habitat loss, pesticides, herbicides and disease.

New York Bee Sanctuary protects bees while helping while helping individuals, institutions, parks and cities connect with their environment.
