Pollinators are responsible for helping to produce almost a third of our food and for the continued
functioning of our ecosystems. But many face an uncertain future because their natural habitats
To save pollinators, we need to understand and support their entire life cycles. That means
maintaining a diversity of native plants that evolved with pollinators. These provide food and
habitat for pollinators in all of their life stages. It’s also necessary to keep ecosystems intact and
