Australia’s 2019-20 bushfires destroyed an estimated 15.6 million hectares of native forests. Critical nectar and pollen sources for honey bee colonies have been lost. Our ability to meet the pollination needs of the Australian agriculture industry is now severely compromised as with the ability to meet demand for domestic and export honey.

A 6-point recovery action plan has been developed through industry wide consultation to recover the beekeeping industry over the next five years.
