Bees (and other species)

For this project I explores the cultures and customs of East European beekeeping. Working with immigrant beekeeper, Mariusz Chudy, a Polish national, who established his bee farm in East Bridgford, Nottingham, to realise his vision of producing sustainable honey and educating his community about Polish beekeeping. ‘Tipping points’ are critical moments in an ecological or social system. Beyond these points, significant and often unstoppable changes can take place. Although gradual changes can be difficult to see, indicator species like Bees (and other species) act as environmental barometers, revealing changes in the health of the natural world. Bees (and other species) are also vital as pollinators, maintaining Earth’s ecosystems, biodiversity and the agriculture that sustains humanity. Yet bee numbers are dramatically falling: worldwide a third of wild bee species are in decline, and in Britain 97% of wildflower meadows have gone.
