Honey bees and other pollinators are vanishing across the world at alarming rates. We can help save them by informing ourselves and others, stopping the use of pesticides, planting pollinator-friendly gardens and buying organic foods!
Let's Help Our Pollinators!

Although this group focuses on honey bees, feel free to submit tips on helping all pollinators! All of them are vitally important and most of them are in decline! "Nearly 80% of our world's crop plants require pollination. Birds, bees, butterflies, but also beetles, mosquitoes, and even bats transfer pollen between seed plants. This function is vital for plant reproduction." -- The Pollinator Partnership
