The LACRIMA Foundation

Choose Your Future

Across the world, we see the devastating impact of intensive agriculture, pesticides, and climate change on the ecosystems that support our ability to grow food. A honey bee, as a major pollinator, is critical for food production and human livelihoods and directly links wild ecosystems with agricultural production systems.

Through the LACRIMA Foundation, we work with local partners to develop the understanding of how to improve the health of the bees. In doing so, we aim to make a fundamental difference to the beekeeping communities globally.



Special Consultative Status

As part of its goal to strengthen opportunities for the LACRIMA Foundation natural beekeeping community to engage with policymaking bodies at the international and national levels, LACRIMA Foundation is pleased to announce that it has been granted Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council.



Revolutionary Strategy

We aim to facilitate a structured process of our conservation strategy to use world’s first ever 3D-printed wood log hives as a main vehicle, thereby providing bees an opportunity to live in an undisturbed ecosystem in synergy with their own seasonal rhythms. A natural nest habitat is the key aspect of preservation and renewal of honeybees’ health and resiliency. Therefore, the restoration of natural bee habitat is an essential part of our effort to restore genetic diversity, adaptability, and vitality of honeybees.


No room for the small dreams

In nature, every deficiency and every shortage calls forth an opposing power. The true underlying problem is not the decline of the bee population but rather the state of their health. We raise consciousness about holistic approach to beekeeping and about the fact that by introducing a mechanical, artificial element, we are actually disturbing what nature has produced in such a wonderful manner. Human beings have long forgotten the instincts of the true understanding of intricate interrelationships and life processes in nature, which they need to be reminded.
