Pollinators - butterflies, moths, bees, hummingbirds, and some bats - are more than just cool to watch. When these small critters visit the flowers we love, they help these plants survive and thrive. Pollinators also help these plants grow into much of the food we eat. And amazingly, pollinators also help clean the air, soil, and water.
Here’s the problem:
People need pollinators, but our actions are harming and killing them! When we use pesticides and herbicides to grow our food, we harm pollinators. We damage their homes when we pollute the air and bring in invader plants and animals, and cause the climate to change.
Here’s the good news!
No matter where you live, it is easy to help pollinators in your community by protecting or creating the habitat they need. As a Pollinator Hero, you will become part of the solution!
