Pollinators play a critical role in our ecosystem and are responsible for pollinating approximately 75% of all flowering plants. This includes plants that produce the fruits, vegetables, and nuts that make up a large portion of our diet. Pollinators, such as bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and bats, transfer pollen from one flower to another, fertilizing the plant and allowing it to produce fruit or seeds. In addition to providing us with food, pollinators play a crucial role in maintaining healthy ecosystems by enabling plants to reproduce and supporting the biodiversity of plant and animal species. However, pollinators are facing numerous threats, including habitat loss, pesticide use, and climate change, which makes it even more important to protect and preserve them.
