What is a Pollinator Protection Pledge?
By taking the Pollinator Protection Pledge, you are committing to do your part for pollinator conservation efforts.
In summary, the pledge asks for you to commit to:
- Growing a diversity of pollinator-friendly native plant species 🌼.
- Use pesticide-free plants and commit to not using pesticides and other harmful chemicals ☠.
- Provide space for pollinators to nest or build a bee hotel 🐝. Remember, some pollinators live underground, so you need to accommodate these insects too. Bee City Canada has a fantastic educational guide for designing a garden for a variety of species.
- Education 📚! Start by chatting with your neighbors about creating a bee-friendly garden. If you have a blog, write an article to help educate people.
