The IBCP was established to protect the natural environment for the Irish public and its future generations by supporting bee and pollinator conservation. We will achieve this by abiding by nationally recognised values and principles of habitat support, bio-diversity, education and research. We will pursue this objective throughout the Republic of Ireland by engaging in Bee-friendly conservation activities, advocacy through centres of excellence, broad population education activities and community activation in the promotion of bee friendly activities.
