Many NGO's such as Greenpeace and AVAAZ help save the bees by fighting for agriculture without pesticides and GMO's. Natural Apitherapy Council together with Save Bee Colonies, Honeybee Stewardship Council and Club of Ecological Beekeepers actively seek to conserve current bee populations by supporting research into solutions that will help the bees face the challenges imposed upon them. Natural Apitherapy Council also supports land conservation efforts that provide wild bees with nesting and breeding ground.  We donate a portion of our profits to organizations working to save the bees. We give educational events that enlighten the public on ways they can have a positive impact on bee populations such as how to plant pollinator friendly gardens and how to keep bees without cruelty to animals. We also have an apitherapeutical friendly Trees for Bees Programme that plants pollinator-friendly trees not only to reduce carbondioxyde as it carried out by www.plant-for-the-planet.org but also to support pollinators as well as landscape and natural Apitherapy. When you adopt a colony or become a member and purchase a beehive product, certified according standards of the Centre for Ecological Apiculture you automatically become a part of the solution.

Don't wait until all Pollinators die out because of pesticides - and pollination needs to be done by farmers themselves (already reality in some parts of China) or until artificially created pollinators take the place of bees (as it is the vision of some scientists at Harvard University: they are developing tiny artificial bee-robots).
