AboutPollinators


Birds, bats, bees, butterflies, beetles, and other small mammals that pollinate plants are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food. 

They also sustain our ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce. 

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