Helping sustain nature’s rarest resources

Pollinators, like bees, are vital to our everyday lives. Studies show that 30% of our food and fiber crops depend on pollinators to survive. Because of environmental challenges, such as pollution and climate change, pollinators are declining worldwide.

The Nature Conservancy and Comvita are striving to help. Comvita's mission is to help people be well and connect with the goodness of nature through the inspiration of bees. Comvita has been practicing sustainable, old-world, craft beekeeping since 1974. Their bees pollinate New Zealand’s  Manuka flower to create honey. 

This holiday season, Comvita and TNC are celebrating the little things together. Comvita's Holiday Gift Set includes three of Comvita’s most popular Manuka Honeys and wellness products, plus a complimentary one-year membership to The Nature Conservancy and subscription to TNC's award-winning quarterly magazine.

Last May, in honor of World Bee Day, Comvita (@ComvitaUSA) donated $2 to conservation for every use of the hashtag #WeCanBeeHeroes on Instagram - for a total donation of $5,000.

The manuka flower only blooms for 2-6 weeks per year and is only native to the specific microclimates in the remote hills and forests of New Zealand.
