Protecting bees: Huttopia’s commitment to nature
At Huttopia, nature is part of our identity. Protecting our environment is a value that drives us on a daily basis. And we want to contribute as best we can towards promoting biodiversity, and especially protecting bees.
Bees are essential to nature, and as pollinating insects, they play a key role in the reproduction of plant species.
This year, we have installed little houses for wild and harmless bees on all our Campsites and Villages: BeeHomes. These little houses help to increase the number of wild bees and aid pollination around our Campsites and Villages.
Our Camp Managers received their BeeHomes with a tube containing mason bee cocoons (about 20 cocoons). The mason bees hatched in the springtime with the first rays of sunshine. And as soon as they were born, they were active: the bees reproduce, build nests and travel great distances to provide pollen and nectar for their young. This foraging is good for wild flowers and good for humanity!
In France’s most beautiful areas of countryside, near lakes and rivers, in the heart of national forests and protected areas, by the sea, in the mountains, or in the midst of castles… This year you can come and observe the life of bees on our Campsites and Villages!
