Base for Enthusiasts of Environmental Science and Zoology (BEEZ) is a student-based society affiliated with the Department of Zoology and Environment Sciences, Faculty of Science, University of Colombo. BEEZ is comprised of students sharing a common interest in the fields associated with zoology and environmental science.
Since the establishment, the goal of BEEZ has been to nurture the love for environmental science and zoology, not only among the students of the university, but also the general public, to create awareness regarding environmental issues, and to organize community projects as well.
BEEZ held the first inaugural session to commemorate the “World Environment Day” on the 5th of June 2015, after its establishment in April, 2015. From that day onwards, BEEZ has completed many projects in striving to maintain a strong connection between society and nature.
“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together”
– Vincent Van Gogh –
Here at BEEZ, we believe that the small steps we take towards loving and protecting nature will make a greater impact someday. Thus anyone with love and passion for nature is warmly welcomed to the BEEZ.
Our vision is of a peaceful and environment friendly world, which lives in harmony with nature.
