One million people came together in order to save the most important pollinating insects on planet Earth.
Those who work the land know well the value of bees and butterflies to preserve life on the face of the planet.
Other people have begun to become aware of the importance of these insects and joined forces to prevent their disappearance.
A global network is the initiative that these people have had back in 2015 in the National Pollinator Network Garden. In 4 years more than 1 million orchards were created, the majority concentrated in the United States.
These spaces can be even small as private patios to large public gardens, which together already has more than 2 million acres of hectares for bees and butterflies all in order for them to survive.
Each member that joins the community must plant plant species that are friendly to abjeas and butterflies, provide water and good light, and not use pesticides.
Nurseries and garden centers have also joined the project by spawning plants and classes for gardeners.
Pollinators are responsible for 1 in 3 bites of food that we take each day, and yet they are at a critical point in their own survival. Many reasons contribute to its recent decline. However, we know for sure that more sources of nectar and pollen provided by more flowering plants and trees will help improve their health and numbers. Increasing the number of pollinator-friendly gardens and landscapes will help revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats, and other pollinators around the world.
It doesn't take a lot of effort to help save these insects, just have a garden and a good will.
‘’ Together, through collaborative conservation, we are restoring the pollinator populations that provide the foundation of our ecosystems and our food supply. When it comes to saving wildlife, we save it. ''
