The Pollinator Partnership (P2) is the administrative lead for the IABIN Pollinators Thematic Network and works with others to contribute management, communication, information technology and scientific expertise. Founded in 1997, the 501(c)3  Pollinator Partnership (P2) works to protect the health of managed and native pollinating animals vital to our North American ecosystems and agriculture. P2 is a premiere source of information for consumers, gardeners, land managers, educators, resource managers, producers, and farmers to help pollinators, essential components for all of life. As one of its many projects, P2 manages the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign (NAPPC) a collaborative, international group of over 130 organizations and individuals that promote and implement a continent-wide Action Plan to encourage activities to protect the numbers and health of all pollinating animals.
