Buzz Certified aims to bolster Native Bee populations by creating an umbrella body dedicated to the preservation of endangered, threatened and protected Australian animals. Initially, it will provide certification to Australian commercial Beekeepers for committing to keeping Native Bees alongside existing European Honey Bees. This will increase awareness about Native Australian Bees and allow consumers to buy with transparency to support native wildlife. It will additionally allow the Australian agriculture industry to be future-proofed against any unforeseen natural disasters and/or intrusive pests which threaten our ability to pollinate crops and provide food for the nation.
