Without pollinators like bees, flies, butterflies and other insects, we would lose the food we need and love – nutritious fruits and vegetables, honey, jam and even chocolate!
In many places in Europe, we have already lost a lot of pollinators, and we keep losing more. 1 in 3 bee and butterfly species are in serious trouble.
We can all help pollinators: Observe the insects at work, they won’t hurt and you will learn a lot! Grow native plants in different colours and shapes, and don’t use chemicals harmful to insects.
