Beehives stop elephant crop-raids in Kenya, Africa

Innovative beehive fences have helped a community in Kenya to successfully protect crops from elephants, according to research.

Conservationists suggest that elephants’ natural fear of bees could settle ongoing conflicts.

The hives’ honey also produced additional profits for farmers — via redwolf.newsvine.com
