The specialist international beekeeping organisation

Lebialem Hunters Beekeeping Initiative

Africa, Cameroon

We aim to help hunters in Cameroon replace hunting with beekeeping as a means to generate income.

Our objectives:

  • Train bushmeat hunters in beekeeping and supply then with the necessary equipment and technical support.
  • Establish beekeeper cooperatives in each community and a beekeeping association in Lebialem to form an organised network of producers that can collectively market honey and beeswax to obtain a fair price.
  • Implement a conservation education programme using films to explain to communities why emphasis is placed on reducing reliance on bushmeat and why the hunting of threatened species is discouraged.
