Bruce Hoffman, Manager for Field Projects of ACT Suriname, is working with the indigenous community of Kwamalasamutu on a project to raise and keep stingless forest bees (Meliponidae) and harvest their honey. This non-timber forest product is a potentially valuable source of sustainable income, and is both tasty and medicinal.
