Learn about Bee for Elephants, a fascinating program that uses bee fences to create a simple, and effective solution for human-elephant conflicts. This technique is championed locally by Butterfly Pavilion and the Katie Adamson Conservation Fund. Bees for Elephants is creating a buzz around the globe.

The evening features a special guest speaker, Lameck Mkuburo of the Tanzanian Elephant Foundation ( who will discuss how human-elephant conflict impacts Tanzanians and elephant conservation, and how beehive fencing is creating a positive change for communities and elephants. Our work allows the Foundation to guide local communities on the use of non-lethal methods to reduce conflicts with elephants, reduce crop losses, and diversify local livelihoods through the sale of honey and wax — a win-win solution for people, animals, and biodiversity.

Join us on March 10th and bring your friends and family. Together we can fund this important global initiative and make positive change.

Thank you for your support and to these partners that make Bees for Elephants possible.

Host Committee: Diane Brinkmann, Margie Carroll, Karl Denzer & Helen Young, Marije ter Ellen, and Barbara Millman
