Help us save them

Bees, guarantors of balanced ecosystems
Bees play a major role in the production of our food. Vegetables, fruits, nuts, spices and vegetable oils depend for many of these insects pollinators. In fact, pollination by bees allows, from the flowers, the development of seeds, fruits and so new plants. Of the plant species that provide 90% of the food in the world, about 70% depend on the bees. Many varieties of vegetables grown in Switzerland would not exist without the hard work of these little workmen. Thus, bees are synonymous with life because we depend on them for the production of foodstuffs.
The dramatic decline in wild and domestic bee populations
Despite their importance, since the late 1990s beekeepers around the world have seen an unusual decline in the hive world.
The causes would be multiple: increasing use of pesticides, infestation by the parasite varroa, difficulties for aging beekeepers to find an engaged succession among young people. There is undoubtedly more than one reason for the diminution of the bees. If continued, the decline could have dramatic consequences for agriculture and the preservation of biodiversity.
Bio-Gestion goes to the rescue of the bees and promises to sponsor every year 40’000 bees, a beehive.
“For our first hive sponsorship we wanted to support a devoted beekeeper heart and soul to produce with the utmost respect for the welfare of the bees. We wanted someone who prefers to do less quantity so that the bees can eat their own nectar. We wanted a beekeeper who really pampered his beloved. ” C. Oehrli
