What is pollination? Pollination is a vital stage in the life cycle of all flowering plants. When pollen is moved within a flower or carried from one flower to another of the same species it leads to fertilization. This transfer of pollen is necessary for healthy and productive native & agricultural ecosystems.

• Approximately 75% of all flowering plant species need the help of animals to move their heavy pollen grains from plant to plant for fertilization.

• About 1,000 of all pollinators are vertebrates such as birds, bats, and small mammals.

• Most pollinators (around 200,000 species) are beneficial insects such as flies, beetles, wasps, ants, butterflies, moths, and bees.

Why are pollinators important? Pollinators are often keystone species, meaning that they are critical to an ecosystem. The work of pollinators ensures full harvests of crops and contributes to healthy plants everywhere.

• An estimated 1/3 of all foods and beverages is delivered by pollinators. • In the U.S., pollination produces nearly $20 billion worth of products annually.
