[ARCHIVED] What’s Happening to our Native Pollinators?

Pollinator Partners Poster

Around the globe and right here in our own backyards, biologists have been buzzing about pollinator decline. From moths to native bumble bees and butterflies, some of these species have already disappeared. Who are the pollinators? Which species are in conservation trouble? What has caused these losses? 

Join a panel of local biologists who have studied pollinators to learn what the issues are and how we might reverse declining pollinator populations.

Taylor Ricketts has examined the crossroads between pollinator decline and economics, and what we can do about it. With the help of corps of citizen scientists, biologists Kent McFarland and Sara Zahendra have studied bumble bee and butterfly populations across Vermont helping to inform land managers and decision-makers. They will discuss the causes and the implications of the decline, and how together we might help keep pollinators working across the landscape into the future.
