What does IBRA do?
The International Bee Research Association (IBRA) was established in 1949 for the advancement of beekeeping science, as a not for profit organisation. It is unique and has one of the largest databases of scientific information on bees and bee related interests in the world.
IBRA is internationally recognised as the world’s single source and foremost provider of information on bees. Its database and information services, including journals, teaching aides and publications, embrace not only familiar domesticated bee species managed by man for their beneficial products but also countless other bee species.
IBRA is run by a small team of dedicated staff in the UK and an international board of Trustees.
We collate and disseminate information on all bee species from the various research institutes and universities throughout the world.
If you are interested in publishing a bee related book, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
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.
