Bees save elephants’ lives, farmers’ livelihood


This video says about itself:

Watch elephants recoil from a bee fence!

5 August 2017

The success of Save The Elephants’s Elephants and Bees project is being felt far beyond Africa’s shores. The Phuleung Wildlife Research Station in Thailand has built several beehive fences using Dr Lucy King’s manual instructions and are seeing astonishing results.

The elephants are coming out of a reserve in Thailand and these beehive fences are protecting small holder farms from raids, hence reducing conflict between elephants and farmers. However, the elephants have plenty to eat in their park.

Watch this amazing film to see how elephants react to the live beehive fence.

  1. Elephants are beautiful animals and all of the blame for conflict between elephants and humans belongs to humans. We have decimated their habitats and irrationally expect them to adapt to whatever lifestyle we deem fit for them. Human beings are insane and our numbers need to be drastically reduced for life to survive on this planet.
