About the event

Using natural resources such as bamboo, soil and wood in Mui Wo and Peng Chau, “Air Bee ‘n’ Bee” aims at providing habitats for our buzzing neighbours on the islands – solitary bees. 

While the bees can enjoy their new abodes, we, in return, could closely observe their living style and get to know how they have an impact on us as well as on the eco-system. You may easily spot an “Air Bee ‘n’ Bee” alongside the Silver River, across the farmlands and up on different trees in Mui Wo or next to the village houses on Peng Chau. These locations are delicately selected to reflect the characteristics of each island. 

Enjoy the company of the solitary bees on the trail of the “Air Bee ‘n’ Bee” while you acquaint yourself with their traits and features. Try to live the life of these furry buzzers! Islanders might also participate by installing an “Air Bee ‘n’ Bee” outside your place.
