Established in 2007 by Pollinator Partnership, Pollinator Week happens this year on June 19-25, bringing the importance of pollination to the forefront. Enhanced focus occurs one week each year on the nation’s pollinating animals, celebrating efforts that are being made to protect the world’s pollinators. Year-round, these efforts are working diligently to reverse and prevent pollinator declines caused by habitat loss, disease, parasites and other unified assaults on pollinator populations.
Pollinator Partnership, a not-for-profit organization dedicated exclusively to the health of pollinators like bees, butterflies, birds and more, has been helping to spread the word about Pollination transfer since 1997. Pollination is important so plants thrive and seeds grow, also helping to produce foods that we eat every day. In the US, pollination by honeybees, native bees, and other insects produces $40 billion worth of products annually.
