David Wainwright has been working with the beekeepers of north west Zambia since 1983. Not much has changed since in these forests - bark hives are still hung high in the trees out of reach of honey badgers and army ants. Wild swarms occupy the hives and start filling them with combs of richly flavoured aromatic honey. After a year or two the beekeepers return, climb the trees and crop the honey, leaving some for the bees. What has changed is the village economy. Now that the young people know they can make a good living from beekeeping, there are more hives and more bees to pollinate the trees ensuring the continued vitality of the forest.
