ABP rescues bees in Cardiff
ABP South Wales has rescued a swarm of bees and rehomed them in the Port of Cardiff’s apiary as part of its commitment to biodiversity.
Christine Nelson, environment manager, and Callum Couper, port manager, ABP South Wales, recovered the swarm of bees that had settled on a bench at Cardiff Bay Barrage.
Callum Couper, port manager, ABP South Wales said: “Aware that we look after bee hives at the port, Cardiff Harbour Authority contacted us to ask if we would be interested in rehoming the bees – to which we of course said yes.
“Biodiversity projects are an important part of our port environment, and it’s great that we’ve once again been able to give a swarm of bees a new home.”
In August last year, Mr Couper, relocated another swarm from a quayside crane at the Port of Newport to the Port of Cardiff estate.
The Port of Cardiff has kept a small apiary at Queen Alexandra Dock for the past six years as part of its biodiversity programme. The hives are located near the lockside and are surrounded by specially planted wildflowers.
The honey harvested from these hives is given to ABP employees at South Wales Ports in exchange for a monetary donation which ABP matches pound for pound and donates to the invertebrate charity Buglife Cymru.
