Did you know human life depends on these small wildlife?  Bumble bees (shown at right) and other pollinators are responsible for one out of every three bites of our daily food. Pollinators are essential for our ecosystems and create sustainable natural resources by helping plants reproduce.  These tiny wildlife travel across our environment carrying pollen on their bodies from one plant to another allowing the transfer of genetic material critical to the reproductive system of most flowering plants.  Without these creatures, then countless fruits, vegetables, and nuts would cease to exist.  More than half of the world’s oils, fibers and raw materials could disappear.  Without vegetative cover of our lands, erosion would increase, and dust storms would grow.  Without this wondrous ecosystem service, the world as we know it would cease to exist, and today these precious wildlife are increasingly in jeopardy.
