How to Create a Pollinator Paradise

What is a pollinator?

Any insect or animal which moves pollen from one flower to the next. This includes bats, bees, butterflies, small mammals, moths, birds, flies, and beetles. Flowers are designed to attract pollinators with their bright colors and enticing fragrance, and in return the pollinators feed on the flowers nectar and pollen. 

Pollinators are essential to the survival of many species of plants and animals, including people. Approximately one-third of the food we eat is delivered by pollinators. Recently, populations of many of our favorite pollinators are in decline, partially due to loss of habitat and food.
