Birds, insects and mammals are responsible for pollinating many of the important food we eat every day. Unfortunately, these pollinators are disappearing across North America, which will impact the health of humans. Learn about the fascinating world of these important creatures and what you can do in your backyard and neighborhood to help them. Students will learn by studying three interconnected species… Monarch butterflies, native bees and insect-eating bats. Each of these animals is disappearing at an alarming rate. Students will have the opportunity to actively participate in discussions using the scientific method and discover what conservation projects are currently underway.
