Pollinators need your help! Bees, butterflies and other invertebrate pollinator species are in trouble: 2 out of 5 are facing extinction. And habitat loss is one of the major reasons why.
The good news is that whether you have a windowsill, a balcony or a full-on garden, you can do your part to help pollinators survive. Taking one of these simple steps will help make your little corner of the Earth pollinator-friendly:
✓ Plant a native flowering plant (in your window box, flower pots or yard)
✓ Reduce or don’t use insecticides (check out great natural alternatives)
✓ Mow your lawn less (clover and dandelions are great for pollinators)
✓ Leave some ground bare (for underground nesting species)
Sign the pledge to take one of these simple steps right now to pitch in for pollinators. It’s easy to do your part to help save pollinators in your community!
America needs to honor our commitments to global climate action. Call for strong and continued U.S. leadership.
The lands that the endangered Florida panther calls home are at risk. Only 180 of these majestic cats are left, and every acre of habitat is critical. Call on Congress today to protect the natural resources the panther and other wildlife depends on.
It's simple: we can't protect our nation's air, water and natural places unless we protect conservation funding.
Invasive species run amok in our lakes, parks -- and even in our own backyards. They overrun native plants and damage the lands and waters that plants and animals need to survive.
Congress is close to taking a critical step to reduce U.S. energy use -- an essential strategy in the fight against climate change. But unless they hear from you now, this vital legislation will go unpassed, increasing threats to nature and communities.
There’s a leafy superhero in your backyard. How much do you know about the power of trees?
I'm ready to pitch in for pollinators!
I agree that everyone can take one simple step to help our world's pollinators survive. I pledge to make my window box, patio or yard more pollinator friendly.
