The Sustainable Grenadines Incorporated (SUSGREN), said it is working along closely with Bee Keepers on Union Island for the development of the nation’s Apiculture Industry.

Susgren is a trans-boundary Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), which operates between St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada, and focusses on issues of marine protection, conservation and stewardship of the environment.

Executive Director of Susgren, Orisha Joseph said they have done extensive work on the Ashton Lagoon project and the black mangrove which they replanted and is thriving now is the perfect habitat for Bees.

She said this will in turn ensure greater honey production for the Bee Keepers on Union Island.

Miss Joseph added that they will also continue to look for funds to further enhance the conservation efforts all across St. Vincent and Grenadines.
