One thousand plants grown for food, beverages, fibers, spices, and medicines across the globe require animal pollination to produce the goods on which we depend. Bees are by far the most critical pollinator, and honeybees have been disappearing worldwide. Native bees, although not as well studied, are declining, too, as a result of habitat loss and fragmentation, among other causes. In fact, Florida has over 300 species of wild/unmanaged bees that play a role in the pollination of crops and landscapes. In this program, you’ll find out how you can help support bee populations through gardening, learn about solitary bees, and discover citizen science projects that need data from gardeners like you to help sustain these valuable pollinators.
