KKL-JNF has been assisting beekeepers for many years and has been contributing to the survival of bees by planting nectar-rich plants all over Israel and providing farmers with nectar-producing trees for planting on their own. 

At the 23rd Beekeepers Conference, which took place at the Agricultural Research Organization (ARO) in Beit Dagan, eight KKL-JNF employees were awarded certificates of appreciation for their work in this field.
 
Bees have a crucial function in the ecosystem by being responsible for the pollination of flowers in natural and cultivated areas. The danger of honeybee extinction, which has been impending, is troubling everyone who cares about our world, not only beekeepers and consumers partial to honey.
