Our Work on Monarch and Pollinator Conservation
The monarch butterfly's epic migration is emblematic of the trinational cooperation required to conserve, protect and enhance the North American environment.
For over two decades we have supported the conservation of the Monarch butterfly along its migratory route, by promoting community projects, developing action plans and supporting collaborative efforts in Canada, Mexico and the United States. Building on this model, we are supporting regional collaboration for pollinator conservation.
People for Pollinators
Pollinators, such as birds, bats, butterflies, bees, beetles, flies and many more insects, ensure the reproduction of many plants that humans and wildlife depend on for survival and are critical for global economic and food security.
Join us in spreading the word about pollinator conservation. Together, we can help pollinators and, in turn, help ourselves.
