Why Does It Matter?


Restoring habitats for pollinators — one backyard at a time

Bees, butterflies, and other insects are in sharp decline due to habitat loss, pesticide use, and climate change. We rely on insects to pollinate 30% of all our food crops, but even more important, 90% of all plants rely upon pollinating insects to reproduce. Song birds, also in sharp decline, are dependent upon pollinating insect larvae (caterpillars and grubs) to feed their young. As the pollinator populations decline, the web of life has become dangerously frayed.

Pollinator pathways are a grassroots movement to stop this decline and turn it around. Become part of the solution and find out how you can join this movement.
