We celebrate the year of the bee by initiating an active email petition. Sign our petition by sending us an email with your name, city of residence and photograph of yourself next to your favorite bee-hotel. The best picture made by a member of the NEV can win 5 euros. The best picture by a non-member can win 10 euros. We would like to publish some of these pictures during the spring and summer of 2012. (We will not publish any pictures or names if you explicitly state that you wish to remain anonymous.) And in September we declare two winners and send a list of all email addresses, names, cities and bee-hotel pictures to the Dutch State Secretary Bleker as a sign of the importance of the year of the bee.
