The one day basic training of bee farming would be the pilot project to see if it needed to be pursued and to see the real potential of conducting bee farming in Sukau. The objective of this project in the long term is to develop and build the capacity of local communities in Sukau to participate and be involved in the bees farming project. Secondly is to test the effectiveness of the new fence design, also to assess the elephant behavior back to the beehives barrier.

Simon Louvard, an enthusiastic French volunteer and Suhailie Kahar, the Lodge Supervisor of Sukau Rainforest Lodge were the officer in charge from Sukau Rainforest Lodge and have identified the potential 10 representatives from local community in Sukau.

“It is better to try and know why you fail than not trying and    not knowing whether it will work in Sukau.” such an    inspiring words from Mr. Albert Teo, the Chairman of    Borneo Ecotourism Solutions and Technologies Society    regarding the proposal of bee farming project in Sukau.

We believe that this will be a good start for BEST Society as pioneer in bee farming project in Sukau.
