Bee at work
In New Caledonia, bees forage in an insular environment protected from the many parasites which, elsewhere, decimate their colonies. Since 2012, an apiculture epidemiological surveillance network has been monitoring the 12,000 beehives and preventing epidemics through the establishment of dispersed sentinel hives likely to testify to the entry of new pathogens by sea. If 93% of the marketed honey is an 'all-flower honey' - to which the bee on the frangipani flower of the photo will contribute - Grande-Terre and Lifou also produce rarer honeys of lychee, niaouli, primary forest, jamelon or Arabica coffee.
