Just wanted everyone to know that I will be presenting a 3-min. breakfast briefing at the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign (NAPPC) annual meeting in D.C. this year. I plan to share results of the GTM NERR native bee survey, website usage stats, and info about GTM's annual Pollinator Day that I helped start. This is a great way for me to share the important work that has been done in NE FL.
NAPPC's mission is to encourage the health of resident and migratory pollinating animals in North America. NAPPC partners gather from throughout the North American continent and beyond to:
- Raise public awareness and education and promote constructive dialogue about pollinators’ importance to agriculture, ecosystem health, and food supplies;
- Encourage collaborative, working partnerships among participants and with federal, state and local government entities and strengthening the network of associated organizations working on behalf of pollinators;
- Promote conservation, protection and restoration of pollinator habitat;
- Document and support scientific, economic and policy research - creating the first-ever, international data bank (library) of pollinator information.
