Dean Haley, Past President of Brisbane Branch ANBA, Author of the recently released book “The Honey of Australian Native Bees”, Member of the Australian Native Bee Association. Dean has “an experimental frame of mind, so tends to do a bit of informal experimentation with stingless bees. It’s a hobby and he considers it fun. He gets a little honey which he shares with friends. He sells a few beehives set up so people can see inside & really enjoy them”.
