Nao Sims is the founder of 'BeeCause Pollination Project' in Vancouver, British Columbia. Nao is a backyard beekeeper dedicated to bringing awareness to the important role of the honeybee with regard to pollination. The honeybee’s worldwide decline indicates a significant imbalance in the natural world. Through establishing bee hives in neighborhood gardens in Vancouver, Nao hopes to get others in her community involved in doing what they can to promote pollination in urban areas.
