Maintaining And Respecting Life In Nature Starts With.. Me!
Maintaining And Respecting Life In Nature Starts With.. Me! This is the Eco Code adopted by the recently Green Flag awarded St. Andrew’s Anglican School (SAAS) in Georgetown, The Bahamas.
One of the key projects at SAAS was the beehive observation initiative started in 2016 with the help of the Exuma Foundation and The Bee Cause Project. The hive houses queen bee, “Buttercup” and over 1000 drone and worker bees. The student beekeeper project is incorporated in the Biodiversity and School Grounds Action Plan. SAAS’s principal, Locksley Forbes said, “The children are made aware of keeping the environment clean. The observation hive exposed the children to the benefits of honey bees and their importance to ecosystems.”
