❁National Pollinator Week Studio❁
National Pollinator Week, from June 17 - 23, 2019, is a time to recognize the importance of pollinators and take action to protect them.
Join the celebration by adding your pollinator-related projects to the studio!
❁What are pollinators and why are they important?❁
Pollinators are animals (often insects, but not always!) that fertilize flowering plants by moving pollen from one part of a flower to another. Only fertilized plants can produce seeds that will germinate into seedlings, and without pollinators, they would not be able to reproduce.
Three-quarters of our crops and 80-95% of plants in natural habitats are dependent on animal-mediated pollination. Without pollinators, these plants as well as the people and animals who depend on them for food and shelter would be affected, causing an impact on organisms on all levels of the food chain.
