The Irish Bee Conservation Project (IBCP) was established to provide information to communities regarding bee habitat requirements and to increase the survival of all species of native Irish bees through research, ecology support and biodiversity protection.
The programme began with a research project investigating some of the challenges being encountered by the native Irish honeybee, Apis mellifera mellifera. This initial research project has now expanded into an organisation with four initiatives as the focus of the IBCP.
These initiatives are Research, Habitat Support, Biodiversity and Education.
The IBCP Project is not affiliated with any beekeeping association or federation, our integral focus being one of conservation.
