    Large parts of South and East Australia have been ravaged by wildfires. The destruction of natural habitats has great impact for Australian beekeepers who produce 70-80% of their honey from forests. There is some positive news: hive losses were minimised by the fast work of beekeepers who moved ahead of the fires and shifted bees outside of harm's way. People from Beechworh Honey have helped beekeepers relocate hives to safe areas, away from fire risk. Beechworth are supporting Australia's registered charity for bees, the Wheen Bee Foundation. You can donate to their Bee Rebuild and Recovery Fund
