Pollinator health information for gardeners
Pollinators are a gardener's friend. Most flowering plants (including fruit and vegetables) can't reproduce without the help of bees, wasps, butterflies, moths, flies, hummingbirds or other pollinators. The loss of pollinators threatens biodiversity and the survival of many native flowering plants that are important sources of food, habitat and other resources for people and wildlife.
By taking a few simple steps to protect these important creatures, you can help your garden thrive and boost pollinator populations in Ontario.
Learn about local organizations that are doing great things to help pollinators.

What you can do to help:
We all have a part to play in helping pollinators to thrive in Ontario. You can help by getting involved in groups that work to promote pollinators or participating in "citizen science" projects by providing useful information to help track and monitor pollinators and their habitats. Both are easy to do. Learn more about the many organizations in Ontario that have pollinator initiatives or are coordinating citizen science projects for pollinator research at Pollinator action highlights.
