Bees. From the ABC.

Beekeeping is usually about making honey but there is another way of operating with a different goal in mind.
Bee sanctuaries are rare and have been described by one operator as “a place that can harbour happy, healthy bees in an environment where they are safe from pests and diseases,” where “bees just get to exist … and call this place their home”.
It is a way of producing honey that more people are taking an interest in, after scandals hit mainstream honey producers this year.
A major producer and a number of supermarket chains faced accusations of unwittingly selling fake honey, which the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) investigated.
A month later, tests done by scientists in Australia found 20 per cent of Australian honey samples, and more than half of samples sourced from honey from Asia, were not pure.
The ACCC inquiry recently concluded, and did not find evidence supporting allegations that Capilano’s Allowrie honey was adulterated with sugar syrup but also raised concerns about the reliability of current tests.
