Working with the honey hunters in the hill ranges of the Nilgiris for over a decade, Keystone felt a gap in the information outreach for different stakeholders. Thus was born the idea of this handbook which would serve as a guide to the best practices in honey hunting and processing activities. The target audience for this book includes honey hunters, Forest Department personnel, NGO workers & trainers who will benefit from this sharing of experiences.

The book endeavors to bring forth nuances of honey hunting unknown to outsiders, besides serving as a guide for correct and easy to use directions on management of honey. It seeks to reinforce the importance of honey hunters in the process of honey hunting.
