Irish Bee Conservation Project


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.

We work to protect Irish Honey Bees, Bumblebees and Solitary Bees. The Irish Bee Conservation Project is entirely run by volunteers.

The four elements of our approach are highly integrated and through our growing network of members we plan to expand our initiatives from Cork and Waterford throughout the country over the coming years.

Our specially designed “Bee Lodges” provide shelter and breeding facilities for all species of Irish bees
