Why pollinator conservation?
Like all wildlife, pollinators are suffering from loss of habitat, climate change, and pesticide use. But unlike some wildlife (bears, elk, eagles, salmon…) they live all around us and we can all do things that will directly benefit them. Bee don’t need a lot of space, so planting flowers in your garden or local park really can make a difference. There is evidence that when there are more flowers, there are more bees, so you will have an impact.
If you’re like us, you prefer to live on a planet that can sustain life. Sure, a post-apocalyptic world’s orange tones can be eerily beautiful. But we fancy a bit more green in our lives. And frankly, the current economic model based on “consume and resume” will result in money being the only green we’ll see in the future.
