 Pollinators

  

June 18-24th marked National Pollinator Week. Did you know that three-fourths of the world's flowering plants depend on pollinators, such as bees, bats, beetles and butterflies, to reproduce?  Pollinators are critical to our food supply.  More than 30 percent of the world's food and flowering plants, including 130 fruits and vegetable plants, depend on insect pollination. Scientists credit insect pollinators for one out of every three bites of food eaten.

Pollinators are a cricital foundation to our food chain, but many species are in trouble. Pollinators face many challenges in the modern world including habitat loss, disease, parasites and environmental contaminants.  How can you help?  Improve habitats for these important insects, birds, and mammals.
