Saving Bees in South Africa
Di Luden is Executive Director for the Community Conservation Fund Africa (CCFA) and one of her projects has been to rehome honey bees.

The CCFA educates members of local communities about the importance of bees and their critical role in the environment and then offers training in the art of beekeeping. Music © Barney and Izzi Hardy
