Why Pollinators?

Pollinators are the forgotten link in our agriculture, farming and food security. Birds, bats, butterflies, bees, small mammals, and other insects all pollinate our food crops, forests, gardens and landscapes.  

These little creatures visit flowers and seed heads to feed, taking pollen from one plant to another so that seed can set and fruit can grow.

Pollinators are responsible for one in every three bites of food we eat.

Pollinator decline is already having an impact on our food security. We need to take action at a local and national level, after all, we rely on pollinators for one in three bites of food.

Without the actions of pollinators, agricultural and horticultural economies, our food supply, and surrounding landscapes would collapse.

Quality food and plenty of housing are essential for thriving pollinator populations. It is up to all of us to make this happen!
