Unlike most species on the planet, the honeybee gives back more to the ecosystem than it takes. Center for Honeybee Research is here to do the same.

WELCOME TO THE CENTER FOR HONEYBEE RESEARCH

The Center for Honeybee Research is an IRS recognized 501(C)(3) charitable organization dedicated to education and research to help solve the honeybee crisis.

Honeybee colonies are failing to survive winter as never before in their 50 million year history. In the current political and economic climate, there is insufficient funding available for academic and government research on honeybees. Center for Honeybee Research exists to provide unbiased data straight from the hives of beekeepers all over the world, freely available to the public. We are taking the lead in systematically collecting scientific data to give us answers to the pressing issues plaguing the honeybee.
