Voluntary conservation areas

Several local associations have already made a voluntary declaration to work exclusively with our native Irish honeybee.

Derry and district BKA last night voted to become a voluntary conservation area for Amm. Other groups to have done the same this year are; Co Offlay BKA, North Kildare BKA,  South Kildare BKA  and South Laois BKA.
