Southern Appalachia Biodiversity Project


Southern Appalachian Biodiversity Project

Through advocacy, education, and organizing, SABP seeks permanent protection for Southern Appalachia’s public lands as well as sustainable management of its private lands. Based in Asheville, NC, this project defends public land as a refuge for ancient forests and native wildife. Promoting the reintroduction of native wildlife that has been extirpated from the region (such as the red wolf) has also been a priority. When necessary, SABP is prepared to take legal action to protect critical habitat and assure full enforcement of conservation laws on public lands. In part through its bi-monthly journal, Wild Mountain Times, SABP educates the public about how forest fragmentation, chronic air pollution, and exotic pests and diseases threaten native forests. SABP also advocates for an end to corporate welfare policies that hurt our economy and natural heritage.

For more information, contact SABP at (828) 258-2667 or sabp@sabp.net.  SABP is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to empowering citizens to appreciate, defend, and restore native biodiversity of the Southeast.  Click for more information

Holy Bee Press ( we talk bee )

Welcome BEE-loveds to HOLY BEE PRESS! and the Bee Loving Hussies Cards – The Queen series

I have fallen in love with pollinators … and in particular with Apis mellifera, the honey bearing bee … one of the greatest teachers in my life. At the peak of summer, my family expands to almost a quarter of a million in number. There is not a day goes by that I don’t think about these precious winged beings. I am a shameless Apis mellifera-loving hussy. I talk bee and English is now my second language … Come have holy bee communion.

Holy Bee Press is a crossroads of honeybee conversation and world bee salon … with some wonderful books coming down the line later this year and in 2012.  Please join this bee-appreciative community by subscribing to our email list.  And invite friends and family who are similarly inclined.  I’m glad you’re here.
