About Bush Bees

Bush Bees is an organisation that is incredibly passionate about Australia's native bees. The happiness and health of our bees, and the conservation of wild bees, comes first in everything that we do.

Bush Bees was founded in 2018 by Isaac Mayer at the age of 14, out of a passion for bees and nature. Since then, we have looked after over 1 million native bees, installed dozens of hives in gardens, schools, and company locations, made over 3 000 sales of native bee products, and educated more than 30 million people about native bees through our social media channels.

We stick to our

  • Education

    We aim to raise awareness of native bees, educate people further about how to support wild populations, keep hives of stingless bees, and more.

  • Conservation

    We rescue colonies under threat from human behaviour, and increase native pollinator populations with bee hotels and stingless beehives.

  • Cultivation

    We are custodians to hundreds of thousands of stingless bees, and we strive to provide the best care for them with ethical beekeeping practices.


We keep hives in a number of sites across Australia, including Sydney and Brisbane. Learn more about our locations here.


Our products, particularly our Bush Bees Botanicals range are stocked at a number of online and physical retailers. Find a Bush Bees stockist here.


Bush Bees has been featured across a number of news and social media companies in Australia and internationally. We are always interested in spreading the word about Australia's fascinating and important native bees. Find past coverage of Bees Bees here, or get in touch here for media enquiries.
