Installation of Bee Hives in the Reserve



Bees play a fundamental role in the conservation of ecosystems, as many native and cultivated plant species depend on pollination to complete their reproductive cycle.

It is believed that BEES POLLINATE 70% OF OUR CROPS. Without them, most of the food we eat would disappear. In addition, many of the medicines and raw materials we use for fabrics come from flowering plants that depend on pollination.

Deforestation, loss of environments, and the abusive use of pesticides in agricultural production have contributed in recent years to the dramatic decline of bee populations.


That is why in our San Sebastian de la Selva Reserve, in recent months, we started a project aimed not only at the conservation and protection of bees, but also at strengthening the ecological processes they fulfill for our natural environments.

A work carried out with the local community and aimed at strengthening ties with those engaged in responsible and sustainable productive activities in the area.




FIRST EXPERIENCE


A few months ago we started the project with the placement of the FIRST 11 bee hives in the Reserve by Miguel, a beekeeper from Andresito, Misiones.

Our strategic location, in the heart of the Urugua-í - Foester biological corridor, surrounded by natural parks, guarantees that the bees move and pollinate mainly in a sector of native forests and woodlands, free of implanted crops, thus offering an organic honey, which is the result of processes that benefit the regeneration of our environments through the interaction of the bees with the native plant species of the place.


The bee honey produced in the area of Andresito, Misiones, is considered of the highest quality, due to its intense flavor and unique properties, and has won national and international awards.

At this stage, and in spite of the difficulties presented by the enormous drought of 2020, the first 50 kilos of honey from the hives located in the Reserve have already been harvested.
