The most beloved gentle giants of Africa can be very destructive.  Besides helping themselves to a little lunch, the crops are stomped upon and entire fields are destroyed.

For years, farmers have built giant fences, or made huge moats, surrounding their crops. Or used good ol’ scare tactics to keep the elephants away. This often led to injuries and fatalities for farmers and elephants alike. But now a solution is being put in place, and it’s both totally genius and incredibly simple.

All the farmers needed were … bees? 

This project is a fantastic idea that helps the farmers and elephants stay out of each other’s way. However, they’re also looking for additional funding to build more bee hive fences, so head over to the Elephants and Bees Project to find out how you can help.

Please share this wonderful idea with others below. It could make a big difference!
