Eric Guerin, is a French biologist specialized in Southeast Asian native bee conservation and sustainable beekeeping. Based in Cambodia since 2008, Eric has been working closely with honey hunters and small-scale beekeepers throughout Southeast Asia. In his exploration of sustainable beekeeping and wild honey collection approaches, he paid special attention to a technic empirically developed by several communities in Southeast Asia.
This technic called “rafter beekeeping” enables beekeepers to safely and sustainably harvest honey from Apis dorsata colonies. Aiming at sharing the technic with other communities, Eric Guerin wrote a training manual with support from the WWF.
Eric will be sharing this technic prior to the upcoming publication of the manual by the International Bee Research Association.
