Level 2

WithMarisol Gallegosand Rene Garzon

Rene lives in the upper part of the Intag area,  has been a beekeeper for 6 years. "I like to consider myself a bee conservationist, protector and rescuer. My work is dedicated to the protection and rescue of these amazing creatures."

80% of the biodiversity of wild plants would be at risk of extinction without the pollinating function. Therefore, we humans would also collapse.

a fascinating world


It is an ancient tradition that consists of taking care of beehives, obtaining a surplus, honey and other products such as propolis, pollen, royal jelly.

In the past, bees and beekeeping were barely noticed, beekeepers, jealous of their knowledge, did not share much information about the trade. Therefore, only now have they become more receptive to tell about their sweet trade.

Likewise, it is a profession strongly linked to sustainability. We do not know of traditional (non-industrial) beekeepers who get rich, nor speculative investment funds that put money into bees. It is therefore a work established throughout history in the world and rural culture.

Being a beekeeper is an exciting and varied occupation. It provides the joys of reflective manual work, but also the concerns of those who depend on the climate, the protection of biodiversity and the health of their animals.
