The mission of this website is to serve the communities of Southeast Louisiana
to further understand and educate about the importance of honeybees
by assisting people in finding resources for beekeeping.

The SELABEES Motto is: Non Sibi Sed Api or

Not for oneself, but for the bee!

The Honeybee is the Louisiana State Insect and the Motto is based on the former state of Louisiana Motto and also that of many schools and universities, including Tulane University; Non Sebi Sed Suis, not for oneself, but for the good of all, or for one's own. The website's author is a graduate of Tulane University and a 10th Generation Louisiana Native.
