Learn ways you can easily help pollinators! Together we can support local pollinators, ecosystems and promote wildlife habitat.
Pollinators play an essential role in our food and beverage systems. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), around 80% of all flowering plants and 35% of the world’s food crops depend at least partially on animal pollinators. One in every three bites of food we take relies on bees and other pollinators. Many fruits, vegetables, nuts, and even things like coffee and chocolate need pollinators to thrive. Without their contributions our plates (and glasses) would look pretty bland.
Despite their importance, pollinators are facing significant threats. Habitat loss, climate change, pesticide use, and disease all take a toll on these critical creatures. To protect pollinators and ensure the health of our ecosystems, we need to take action to support them.
