Yrittäjän ensimmäinen vuosi Nora Mäntysaari Hello honey

Protecting pollinators

I am concerned about pollinator decline and so should you be. All the news about bee colonies collapsing and the amount of flying insects decreasing made me worried. “What could I do for them?” So I decided to become a beekeeper.

I am Master of Science from University of Helsinki and I majored in Animal Genetics & Breeding. I did my minor studies in Wildlife Research & Management, Marketing and Business Economics. This summer I will also graduate from the school of Beekeeping.

I protect a rare bee breed called Nordic dark bees. It is our native honey bee in Finland. Only 1 % of our beekeepers have that specific breed, so it is truly endangered. Volunteering is a huge part of my life and currently I am Secretary in the Uusimaa Beekeepers’ Association (region in Southern Finland) and a member of board in the Finnish Association of the native Dark Bee.
