Our honey bees are getting some game time!
This November a nature-orientated, family friendly videogame Bee Simulator hits the South African shelves and The Bee Effect is joining The Cause with our #BeeCentric stamp of approval.
Why is Bee Simulator so amazing?
“Education is a key enabler in any programme for honey bee sustainability, and any success today we have in mitigating the threat against honey bees can only succeed in the future if our children understand the value of these incredible creatures to our environment, to our lives. Bee Simulator is #BeeCentric as it educates in a fun and memorable way which I hope children will enjoy as much as they will come to love honey bees through it,” says Eve Puttergill Founder of The Bee Effect.
This November, experience life as a bee in an adventure game for both children and adults alike. Take on a quest to save your swarm or enjoy the peaceful life of a bee in Honeypark.
Check it out!
Bee Simulator will be available PS4TM, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch™ on November 22

About The Bee Effect
The Bee Effect is an award winning programme that focuses on actions that effect change in the threats against honey bees via an awareness platform that educates and sustains awareness for them by continually sharing relevant information with the public, the agricultural industry, beekeepers and our children; in addition to this the programme implements projects that are focused on increasing honey bee forage through seed programs and honey bee havens, as lack of forage diversity is one of the key threats to them.
Everyone can help our honey bees, in our backyards, on our veranda’s, unused farmland, municipal walkways and community parks and lands – using our land bee-effectively – planting food to feed our honey bees.
Bee Simulator is a wonderful way to spread education about honey bees and The Bee Effect is proud to be supporting the buzz.
