U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
These hard-working animals help pollinate over 75% of our flowering plants, and nearly 75%Monarch Hwy Pic for FWS of our crops. Often we may not notice the hummingbirds, bats, bees, beetles, butterflies, and flies that carry pollen from one plant to another as they collect nectar. Yet without them, wildlife would have fewer nutritious berries and seeds, and we would miss many fruits, vegetables, and nuts, like blueberries, squash, and almonds . . . not to mention chocolate and coffee…all of which depend on pollinators.
