ACT for Bees @ Local Hero finals ACT – Australian of the Year Awards

October 30, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

I wanted to share the exciting news that we (ACT for Bees) have been nominated for ‘Local Hero’ ACT Australian of the Year 2024 awards and we are in the final next Monday 30th October at 6pm.  Go to australianoftheyear.org.au to watch the live stream on Monday 30 October at 6:00pm(AEDT). #WereAllPartOfTheStory
It is such an honour and I want to thank those who have nominated me as the representative of our group as ‘a voice for the bees and pollinators’. It is an exciting platform to show that bees are ‘more than stings and honey’, that they are vital for food security, biodiversity and healthy ecosystems.  With Australian Pollinator week very near, it’s an amazing opportunity to shine a light on the range of native bees that are particularly vulnerable to pesticides, habitat disturbance and lack of flowers! 
We will see how this higher public profile impacts our key message on the importance of pollinators and how we can all support their health and wellbeing by planting for year round flowering in our gardens, our streetscapes, our schools and open spaces. This also has a positive impact on our health and wellbeing as a growing body of research is showing.
