What's it all about?

Bees pollinate 1/3 of our food supply and they are dying at alarming rates. Haven is a nationwide art installation intended to help reverse this trend. A network of one thousand specially designed beehives will replace diminishing habitat for wild honeybees, and enable the collection of valuable field data for researchers.

On your next visit to the KC Zoo, stop by and check out the new Haven hive opposite the Discovery Barn. The bees were all abuzz for a day or two while they were resetting their GPS, but now their attention has turned to nectar hunting and pollinating the zoo’s flowering trees and shrubs.
