LEAFS

Our Leading Environmental Action for Sustainability (LEAFS) program offers communities the knowledge and resources necessary to establish viable solutions and businesses that generate sustainable income and support healthy rainforest habitat. In collaboration with the Katie Adamson Conservation Fund, the Bee Fence Project involves using bees to mitigate human-elephant conflict. With an understanding that elephants are fearful of bees, hives are placed around the perimeter of agricultural crops, ensuring that these areas are not disturbed. This design provides an alternative to harmful means of elephant control, while protecting farmer livelihoods and contributing pollination services to the local area. Location: Nepal
