Will you be a Hero for Pollinators?

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 many of the foods we eat. And amazingly, pollinators also help clean the air, soil, and water. 

Here’s the problem...

People need pollinators, but many of our actions are harming and killing them. When we use pesticides and herbicides to grow our food and gardens, we put pollinators in danger. When we only plant flowers for their looks and not their environmental value, we make it hard for pollinators to grow and reproduce. 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 and creating the habitat they need. As a Pollinator Hero, you are part of the solution that's helping pollinator species!
