What does IBRA do? IBRA Logo

Founded in 1949, the International Bee Research Association (IBRA) is a not for profit organisation.  It is funded from the generosity of our members and supporters, and by donations and legacies.

IBRA is run by a small team of dedicated staff and an international board of Trustees. In summary we collect, collate and disseminate information on all species of bees.

We are a publishing house, producing a varied and extensive selection of
bee publications:

If you are interested in publishing a bee related book, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
We supply information to beekeepers, scientists, researchers, extension workers, schools and organisations around the world.

We are proud owners of the IBRA / Eva Crane Library collection - one of the largest collections of books and journals in the world, covering all aspects of apiculture.

We attend and support conferences and bee conventions around the world. This provides an opportunity to distribute information and to meet our members.
