Get the buzz on bee research | World Bee Day 2021

Perth commuters and visitors to the city are encouraged to make a bee-line to the Murray Street Mall on Thursday to celebrate World Bee Day 2021.

A bee flora display in the mall will feature a safely enclosed bee hive, as well as bee experts to enlighten visitors about research efforts to foster and protect the Australian honey bee industry.  

Visitors can learn about research to support the safety and integrity of honey products, including recent enhancements to the B-QUAL quality assurance system by the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Honey Bee Products, a team of researchers funded by the Federal Government.

The University of Western Australia (UWA) and the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPRID) are CRC participants, which have been working to augment B-QUAL as a tool to aid the continuous improvement of bee businesses and industry.

Special thanks to those who’ve helped bring this event together.
