Save our pollinators

Fun Fact! About 90% of wild flowering plants, and 75% of the world’s crops depend at least in part on animal pollination. Pollinators include over 20,000 different bee species as well as butterflies, wasps, moths, beetles, birds, bats, and other vertebrates. Unfortunately, 16.5% of vertebrate pollinator species are threatened with extinction globally, and 40% of invertebrate pollinator species – bees and butterflies in particular – are facing extinction.
