Brazil is rich in stingless bee species, or melipona. Increasingly, groups are dedicated to researching and protecting these species. Among them is the Joinville Meliponicultores Association (AME-Joinville), which had a booth at the traditional Joinville Flower Festival, between November 10 and 15. During the event, work was done to raise community awareness about the importance of bees, the main pollinators of nature. It also highlighted the impact of deforestation on the lives of bees, which lose space for the construction of their hives.

Founded two years ago, the Association does not market the honey its bees produce. Their objective is to ensure the survival of bees through activities such as rescue nests at risk and exchange information, especially on a local scale.
