Pollinators: Beyond Bees & Butterflies (webinar)

11 July @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm BST

Learn about the pollinators of Florida -beyond bees and butterflies- that help maintain the health of our plants and food crops

Pollination is essential to successful reproduction in more than 90 percent of the 250,000 flowering plant species now in existence. More than 100,000 varieties of insects, including bees, moths, butterflies, beetles and flies, serve as pollinators, as well as over 1,000 species of vertebrates, including birds, mammals and reptiles.

They are key to pollinating many agriculture food crops, but native pollinators are essential for maintaining the structure and function of a wide range of natural communities in North America. In the wild, an abundant and healthy population of pollinators increases biodiversity and creates more food for wildlife. The availability of native pollinators is as important as moisture, sunlight and soil fertility to the reproductive success of nearly half the world’s flowering plants.
