As I’ve posted many times, pollination is a vital part of any ecosystem and ecosystems are a vital part of our well-being here on Earth. We should not overlook their importance, and, in fact, should become a vital part of seeing that they stay healthy — for the future of our food depends upon it.
To that end, two years ago, the US Senate passed a resolution which designated a week for pollinators. This year Pollinator Week is June 18 – 24.
A big factor in getting this resolution passed was the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign (NAPPC). “NAPPC is a growing, collaborative body of more than 160 diverse partners, including respected scientists, researchers, conservationists, government officials and dedicated volunteers which is succeeding with major programs to protect pollinators, to raise pollinator-related issues, and to benefit the health of all species – particularly those most threatened.”
The Pollinator Partnership has prepared a Pollinator Week 2018 Toolkit for us to use in getting the word out about the importance of pollinators. It has some good information in it and some great graphics.
