Pollinators in Peril, Our Food System in Crisis, and the Potential for Restoration


A number of climate change studies even predicted increasing insect populations and pest problems. While I think this loss has been overlooked as most people don't care much about insects and see them more as a nuisance than a benefit, their decline correlates with a decline in many other species. The loss of any species should draw our concern, when it comes to our own livelihood and the food on our tables, the insects that are so critical are those that pollinate our crops.
