Paul van Westendorp

Provincial Apiculturist

Government of British Columbia

As a UBC graduate, Paul had the opportunity to be involved in apiculture research, followed by several years of tropical apiculture in East Africa, where beekeeping development and education offered subsistence farmers supplemental income without placing demands on land ownership. In the late 1980s, Paul was appointed as Provincial Apiculturist of Alberta, and was subsequently appointed to the same position in British Columbia.
