Why should we support pollinators? The more we know about them, the reasons become obvious. Pollinators are interesting, beautiful, and essential creatures of the natural world, providing us with one in every three bites of food we eat.
Southeastern Arizona, the center of operations of Pollinator Corridors, is an extremely important migration corridor for birds, especially hummingbirds and other tropical species found nowhere else in the United States. It is also home to regionally unique pollinators including two endangered nectar bats, fourteen species of hummingbirds, over 250 butterflies, and thousands of moths, beetles, native bees, and other insects.
Our mission is to support natural habitats and their pollinators in southeastern Arizona through public education, habitat restoration and citizen science activities. You can help by supporting our projects, including our pollinator demonstration gardens that educate the community, our native plant seed collecting efforts for restoration projects, a live-streaming webcam displaying daytime hummingbirds and nighttime nectar bats, community educational presentations about the beauty of the natural world and the consequences of pesticide use, distributing pollinator plant seeds to gardeners, and the Thicket restoration garden project to heal key pollinator habitat burned in a wildfire.
Your support can make a big difference for pollinators -- thanks!
