Why is pollinator awareness so important?
Pollinators play an essential role in our world.
Bees and other insects are essential for the pollination of many food crops, like blueberries and almonds. They also ensure the success of wild flowering plants, which support many other species of animals. One out of every three bites of food we eat is the result of pollination by bees. And over 75% of all flowering plants are pollinated by animals. And don’t forget without pollination, chocolate and coffee would not exist!
Pollinator populations are declining.
Especially bee populations. Development and certain agricultural practices have disturbed or fragmented habitat bees need for foraging and nesting. Poorly managed use of pesticides and herbicides can result in vulnerability to diseases, parasites and death.
You can be a Pollinator Protector!
You can do a lot! Plant flowers that provide nectar and pollen and extend the blooming season by deadheading old flowers to produce new flowers. Provide trees, shrubs and groundcovers for shelter. Plant native plants.
You can also get involved with Butterfly Pavilion’s Pollinator Awareness through Conservation and Education (PACE) initiative! Through a combination of conservation and education programs, PACE works to create a better world for pollinators—making a better world for all of us. Learn more at www.pace4pollinators.org.
