The Zen Beekeeper Returning Hives to the Wild

Apis Arborea, a bee rewilding organization, seeks to educate the public on how to sustainably and responsibly rehabilitate and save the world’s bee population. Headed by Michael Joshin Thiele, the organization is helping commercial and urban beekeepers do so in a way that mimics their natural habitats. Practices like keeping hives 20 feet above the ground, handling them without protective gear, and making sure they have space will help improve the bees’ lives.
