    Pollinators are disappearing and the are starting to die,you might not know this but they are really helpful for a lot of reasons.One reason is the they help us pollinate ⅓ of our food crops.

                Now people are finding the reasons why the are dying and the reasons for that is because people will find                     nest of bees and they get scared that the are going to come out and stung them.They don't want to sting you because when they sting you they just die and the just want to go to the flowers and get nectar and the pollen from the flowers.People think the are going to harm you.They don't they actually do a lot to help us.Here are some of the things they help us do,They help us from most of our fruits and veggies.They help us make honey.

            Now they are dying way more.Walmart and all the stores like those are selling and are spraying pesticides down to kill bees.What they don't know is we need those in life if we did not have them in life we would not be able to eat fruits and healthy food and we would have to eat junk food like chips,popcorn,candy and more unheathy food.They are also dying off because of a big issue which is habitat loss.What people are starting to do is that the are making habitats for all the animals that help us pollinate.If they were all gone then we would half to hand pollinate our own food and the that would take more time until the end up going into the stores.

                 Next here are a few reasons why the are important to our world.Here are some reasons why they are important is because we would have to self pollinate if we did not have them we would have to self pollinate.Here is another reason why the are helpful,when the gather a bunch of pollen they will get it in their body and then they will bring it to another flower which when the do that they are doing a lot to help people.They are really important.They might also go instinked ,There are over 20,000. species of bees and if they all die then that will not be good at all.

If we lost all of our pollinators the biggest consequence would be that we are going to self pollinate which will be hard.Another one is that if we lost all of the bees then all of the flowers would have a lot of nectar and pollen building up in it and it will never come out because that is the bee’s  job.If we went to the store and there was no food because there were no bees or anything that could pollinate.Then it would take like a month or so to get all of our food self pollinated and into the stores.

In conclusion we need to stop spraying and killing our pollinators.Those we some reasons why we need to stop hurting them and also what our consequences.Have you been doing what you should be doing.We don't want them to die so don't harm our bees and all of our Pollinators. Remember they don't want to hurt you they just try to get to flowers and live their lives like us humans.Are you harming animals think about it.

Jon's writing


     We should care for the environment by keeping beaches clean and picking up plastic bags so animals don't get caught in them if you see cans or plastic bags you should pick them up and throw them away. An example from the text is if you see an animal caught in a plastic bag help it and bring it to a vet or back to the animal's habitat so it can be safe and rest for a while until it's back to full health.

      An example from the text is if you see a computer on the ground all alone pick it up and dispose of it properly so there is no e waste there. Keep cans and bottles in recycling bins and make sure you take care of paper so it doesn't end up on the streets so an animal doesn't eat it or get killed by it there because of that one person that threw the paper outside instead of in a trash can or recycling bin.

      Plastic bags are being dumped on the ground every year by people not thinking correctly. Every year 4 million plastic bags are dumped on the beach or on the street by people who are too lazy to get up and recycle them or throw them in the trash so they don't end up in the streets or in the water if people don't throw away trash properly animals will pay for and so they don't kill animals like whales turtles or even bird that are on the beach. In one day kids found eleven pounds of plastic bags on the beach.

    People are the reason that  animals are dying because they are eating and choking on plastic bags people leave on the beach plastic bags that get in the ocean cause animals to die every day by eating them or getting suffocated by them. An example from the text is whales turtles and birds are dying by humans being lazy and just leaving plastic bags on the ground instead of being recycled or put in the trash.

      These are the things we are doing to affect our environment and the humans and animals that live here. This is also how we can fix it and help every person and animal that is here so that they don't die and we don't die so we can keep living on this planet earth and have it clean and healthy. Which means we can be clean and healthy as well.

Zachary's Pollinator Essay

    By:Zachary Hansen

            Pollinators are dying because of the use of pesticides. We need to fix this by convincing retailers and big cooperated stores to stop spraying pesticides all over the flowers. Then the bees will fly to those stores and try to get the pollen but then once the pesticides are in them it will start to affect their body then once it is fully in them they will not remember where and how to get back to the hive. So we need to stop spraying bad chemicals and pesticides on all of our plants and flowers that stores have. Such as Home Depot, Lowes and Walmart and need to start using organic fertilizers and substances.

          Pollinators are dying because of the use of pesticides. When the bees take in the pesticide called neonicotoid it makes the bees hard to fly and find their way back to the hive. Evidence includes, “We know how to live In harmony with the ecosystem through the adoption of sustainable practices that simply do not allow toxic pesticide use.,” So this shows that we need to be activist and save the bees.

          The importance of pollinators includes the fact that they can save a lot of time and money for humans.,”20,000 species of pollinators are key to hundreds of billions of dollars.,” So if we lost pollinators we would be in a deep hole because we would have way less food in stock prices will run up and the food chain just wouldn't make sence. Evidence shows, “Because our survival depends on healthy pollinators, we must do everything in our power to solve this problem.,” This shows that we really need to put in some brain power and hard work to fix this problem. Because if we don't fix it we will have not as much food and prices will go up and more people will be poor with not as much food.

          If we lost pollinators ⅓ of our food population would be gone and if we lost pollinators it would be humans fault because of the use of pesticides that we spray. Crops would be way down because the pollination would not be going around as much. If we lost pollinators. Evidence shows, “Hundreds of years now we have been working together with bees so let’s just do the bees a favor and stop using pesticides on all crops and wildflowers. So this shows that we can save the pollinators and work together and make a difference in the world and to help save the pollinators.

         The soulution to fix this problem is going to be. If you are in a city and have no room on the ground to plant wildflowers so be it plant them on your roof. Do urban beekeeping. This is when you plant flowers on your roof and they pollinate those then they would pollinate everybody’s crops and then they would pollinate all the other crops that we have. So urban beekeeping is one option to save pollinators. Another option is to stop spraying weed killer on your front yard did you know that chemicals just don’t kill weeds it kills all of the wild flowers to. So stop using pesticides and start using organic fertilizers and substainces. Evidence shows, “Urban beekeeping is an option for saving the bees on rooftops in cities. So this shows that there are many ways that everybody can help save the pollinators.

      Students are being activist at MMS by planting wild flowers and milk weed beds for the Monarch Butterflies and the Honey Bees. we are also spraying organic fertilizers on our flowers and crops to. This shows that we are being productive at being activist at MMS. Because we saw an issue and there has been a steep decline in honey bee population over many years. So this is why here at MMS we are being activist to fix the pollinator problem.



                        Pollinator Die Off
                                                          By.Daniel Belanger

       Bees are important because they pollinate plants and crops but they are dying off. If all the bees die off we will have to pollinate by hand.

       Bees are dying, this is because of pesticides. The chemicals in pesticides make the bees die or not able to find there way home. Evidence of this is “every polling that bees grab has at least 6 pesticides.” This is important because when the bee brings it back to the hive then all the bees get sick and die. This is because the pesticides are meant to kill things that eats them so when bees take the pollen they take the pesticides are in the polling. So next time you want to use pesticides on your plants think of the bees, use organic pesticides.

      The bees pollinate to get food for themselves, but they don't know that they are also pollinating at the same time. They shake their wings which shakes the pollen off of them from underneath their  bodies  and lands on other flower and plants they land on. Some evidence of this is “bumble bees shake their wings and knocks off the pollen off the flower.” This is important because if they did not do we would most likely to have less plants. So we would have to pollinate by hand so we can have food, and it would be a lot harder and longer to do.

     We would have less food if the bees die off. We would have to pollinate by hand it will take longer and it would cost more. It would cost more because the companies who sell fruits or vegetables would have to hire more people to pollinate by hands. If they don’t hire more people to pollinate by hand we would have a lot less food. See it is a loss, loss because we would have less food, and companies will have to pay more money.

    These are the reasons why pollinators are important they pollinate plants, and if there were no bees there would be less food. Bees are dying or not able to find there way home. If bees die we would have to pollinate by hand. They pollinate plants and crops that helps them grow so we can eat. To stop this we need to warn companies who use Monsanto products. At Massabesic Middle School we are planting milkweed to increase the population of bees. The other thing we are doing at Massabesic is writing letters to companies that use Monsanto products.

Pollinators by: Mia Libby

All of these pollinators are dying because of the use of pesticides, not enough flowers are planted, lastly colony collapse disorder. We are all capable of helping these little creatures, for them to help us.

Pollinators are dying because of the use of pesticides. People use pesticides to kill off any pests or disease carriers, such as spiders, mosquitoes, ticks, rats and mice. “People have used varieties of pesticides on their crops”(newsela.com) This is important to us because we need our food, to keep us safe and alive.

   The importance of pollinators is they help pollinate our crops (fruits, vegetables). The pollinators do this by going flower to flower collecting pollen. “Pollinators create ⅓ of our food source”(tedtalk)

   The consequence of losing our pollinators is we would have to pollinate by hand. This affects our environment because the crops wouldn't grow; we wouldn't have as much food. “People in China have to pollinate their flowers/crops by hand, toothbrush, or paintbrush(Ted Talk).

   People are helping pollinators by planting flowers that the bees like and not using pesticides. Alternatives to Pesticides?- Colony Collapse Disorder- “is the phenomenon that occurs when the majority of worker bees in a colony disappear and leave behind a queen.” “When people use/spray pesticides, that causes CCD- Colony Collapse Disorder.”(en.m.wikipedia.org)

   At MMS we can plant flowers to attract the bees/pollinators. We at MMS ARE planting more and more flowers. “Our school is doing the Samantha Smith Challenge. To bring the world the food they need that comes from pollinators.”

   In conclusion, pollinators are dying because of the use of pesticides, not enough flowers for the bees, and Colony Collapse Disorder. To fix this problem we can not use pesticides on our plants, and we can plant more flowers around town. At MMS we can help by planting flowers. We can help by not using pesticides. Lastly we can help by not killing the bees, all the bees want to do is protect their colony and the honey.

Pollinators are dieing because of CCD,pollinate by hand,pesticides. Colliny claps disorder is a big part of the killing of pollinators. Pollination is a big part of our food sources. Pollinators help pollinate ⅓ of our food source. If we did not have pollinators we would have to self pollinate.

Pollinators are dieing because of CCD also known as colliny claps disorder. Also “People are useing pesticides on plants.”(newsela.com). This is important because we can not lose pollinators so we have to stop using them.

People would have to pollinate by hand if pollinators die. Also “We would have to pollinate by hand”(mms May 4th 2016). So if pollinators die people would have to pollinate by hand with a toothbrush or paintbrush.

People are planting habits all over New York. In 2010 is when the government allowed us to start putting habitats in New York. Also “ we make habitats all over the roofs in New York” (Ted talks). This is important because we are making more habitats in the city.

In conclusion pollinators are dieing because of CCD,pollinate by hand,and pesticides. Making habitats on roofs in New York having pesticides on flowers we would have to self pollinate.

          Pollinators are important because they help fertilize food humans eat, they naturally pollinate and help plants grow and also keeps food prices low. Pollinators are dying and why it's happening. How pollinators pollinate crops to allow them to grow. The consequences of losing the pollinators and how it will affect the environment. At the end the conclusion.

          Pollinators are dying because the use of pesticides for keeping bugs away but it is killing pollinators too. But that is not the only reason they are dying they also are dying because of Colony collapse disorder (CCD) is the phenomenon that occurs when the majority of worker bees in a colony disappear and leave behind a queen, plenty of food and a few nurse bees to care for the remaining immature bees and the queen. Also, pollinators are dying because when farmers grow crops they grow just one crop but the bees need more wildflower so then they don't get enough pollen.

          Pollinators are VERY important because they go to plant-to-plant collecting pollen from one flower to put it into other plant so they can grow properly. This means pollinators are doing us people tremendous favor. So now food companies that use pesticides should either throw them away or make a greenhouse where there would be no pests or grubs. But if companies like Monsanto don't stop doing this they will end up killing all pollinators and having to start going around their field with cue tips and pollin and do it themselves. But not only Monsanto would have to do this it would be the entire world! (Just because of Monsanto)

          Many issues will happen with the environment if pollinators go extinct. First of all the food price would skyrocket because farmers would have to hire people to put pollin into their crops so then it would make the food harder to grow which=more money. Millions of flowers wouldn't grow worldwide because the lack of pollen in the flowers. But most of all the food won't taste good this will happen because many companies such as Monsanto won't bother to pollinate the crops so then they would taste bad. This is the effect on the environment without pollinators.

          In conclusion, all pollinators are important because they help us humans live better because they pollinate ⅓ of the food we eat. Without pollinators we would have to pollinate plant's ourselves which could cause food price increase. When they pollinate they help millions of wildflower so worldwide. This is why pollinators are very important.

        Pollinators are disappearing for many reasons. One is that the pollinators homes are being destroyed by construction,pollution,and agriculture pollinators are dying. This is happening because in the areas where the pollinators live are being destroyed by human construction,pollution,and agriculture. “ The areas where bees live are being destroyed by humans through construction,agriculture,and pollution” said the Washington Post of 2015. This is important because if the bees homes are destroyed the we will not have the bees. If we do not have the bees we will not have wild flowers and most of our food supply.

        Pollinators are important. They are important because they are what make most of our fruits and vegetables. “ Bumblebees are what pollinate tomatoes, cranberries ,and blueberries” said Laura Klahre on Ted Talks in 2016. This quote is important because is the bees disappear then we will lose the food that give us nutrients and energy. Also, the squash bee makes a lot of our vegetables.

        If the pollinators go extinct then we will lose most of our food supply and those pretty wild flowers a lot of people love. “ Wild flowers are disappearing” said the Associated Press in 2016. This is important because without the wild flowers bees and other pollinators won't have food and we won't have much of our food.“Without bees we will have less than half of the food” said Maria Spivak on Ted Talks in 2013. This is important because if we lose the bees we will lose most of our food supply and not have most of the foods that a lot of people like.

      Some people are trying to help address the issue of the honey bees going extinct.For example, the Obama administration announced the first National Strategy to Promote the Health of Honeybees and other Pollinators. “ May 19, the Obama administration announced the first National Strategy to Promote the Health of Honeybees and other Pollinators” said the Washington Post in 2015. This is important because if the president is trying to help then the issue might be more noticed and people might start helping get the be population up.
      People around the world can help address this issue. For example, planting bee-friendly flowers and avoiding pesticide contaminates will help bring the bee population up. “ Plant bee-friendly flowers and avoid pesticide contaminates” said Maria Spivak on Ted Talks in 2013. This is important because if we plant bee-friendly flowers and avoid pesticide contaminates then the bee population will go up.
      In conclusion pollinators are disappearing for many reasons. Pollinators are dying. Pollinators are really important. There is a lot of consequences if we lose the pollinators. People around the world are trying to help address this issue. At MMS we are planting milkweed to help get the monarch butterflies population up.

               By: Alexander Sharron
   A bee is a wonderful animal because they pollinate all flowering plants. This is important because if bees didn’t pollinate flowers then humans lose the ability to harvest the food that the plants would provide. Pollinators are important to farmers and people who grow the food because if pollinators don’t assist the, then the farmers will not be able to collect fruits or vegetables from their gardens. We harvest pollinated plants for their fruit and of other nutrients that they could provide. The food taken from the plants and that is what makes up ⅓ of the world's food supply.
The first example of why pollinators are dying is because of pesticides that people are spraying on crops and flowers. One example includes, “More than 75 million lbs of herbicides are used on U.S. farms each year.” (PAN). When the bees go to pollinate the flower or crop they accidently pick up the pesticides on their feet and head when they land to collect the nectar from flowers that are exposed to herbicides. Over time this exposure kills them. If that infected bee returns to the colony,  it can also kill of an entire colony of bees. This is because the infected bee drops the infected pollen and nectar off at the hive and when other bees are exposed, they also become infected.
         Another example of why pollinators are important is they go from flower to flower pollinating them and collecting nectar. When they do the flower drops fruit with seeds in it which makes other flowers grow. One example is,“Fully ⅓ of the food we eat depends on bees for pollination.” (PAN). When the bees go to collect the nectar they pick up pollen and bring it to the next flower. The pollen falls off into the flower, makes a seed then a fruit.
        If the bees population dies out than ⅓ of ALL our food will disappear from all grocery stores worldwide. One example is, “To save Earth's food supply, we need to first save Pollinators.” (Newsela staff). People need health food but if Pollinators die out then there will be no health food for us. Then the health problems happen,then we eventually die from them.we need bees for healthy food.
    To help solve this problem people are starting to help bees by protecting land for bees to thrive and survive. An example is, “ The government will help protect 7 million acres of land across the country.”(Newsela staff). If we give the bees protected homes from pesticides then the bee population will most likely go up.
       At MMS we are planting flowers for butterflies and bees to pollinate. If we plant flowers for bees then they will probably pollinate our garden too. Then we both get what we want, the bee gets nectar without pesticides and we get food from the garden. The food we get will be healthy and fresh for us to eat.
       In conclusion, with the wonderful pollination of bees,we have flowers and food. Bees help us with food but they’re dying because of our pesticides. We need to help save the bees from dying. We can do this by planting flowers or leavening a dead tree in our yard. Farmers can use a less deadly pesticide on their crops so the bees can live.


Bees are dying because people are spraying pesticides and chemicals and people are also building buildings and the bees are losing their habitat. This essay is going to be about pollination and how bees help grow our food. Bees help grow up to ⅓ of our food by pollination and people are killing the bees.

      Pollinators are dying because of pesticides and chemicals my evedance for this is that people and companies are spraying pesticides on their crops and to kill bugs. My second reason is that China spraied pesticides on their crops to get rid of the verolla motes

      The importance of pollination is that it helps our food grow and that people don't have to do it by hand the second thing is that people want fully grown food and the final thing is that my evedance for this is that the person in the Ted talks video he said that people want pollonators more than they want to do it by hand.

      My conclusion is that people want to have pollonators to grow their food and that people want healthy food in their homes and people also want to not do it by hand. The second reason is that people want to help save the bee population and that the want to help with pollination

Ellie's pollinators

   Pollinators are very important to our world, pollinators pollinate ⅓ of our crops that people eat. If we didn't have pollinators the work might get done successfully but it would take time and effort. Pollinators don't only pollinate flowers and plants but they pollinate crops such as, cranberries, peaches, tomatoes, Cherries. There are more than 4,000 species of bees. Bees pollinate 75% of our crops. In some way bugs are very helpful. Only a few insect species are harmful there more bugs kill other bugs is less we will have to use pesticides. Also, as all these bugs munch away they produce little droppings and soon those droppings will be rich fertilizer.  (What good are bugs?, Gerry Shop and David Shelton)

    Pollinators are dying due to a variety of reasons. One is even pesticides, that you might be using on your plants.” Pesticides are one of the many anthropogenic insults threatening pollinators.” In other words, pesticides are one of the causes of pollinators dying and disappearing. Every year over 2,000 bees are dying. That is a lot of bees also known as pollinators. Not only bees are dying, in 2006 the first cave floors were found covered with dead bats in northeast. In other words, bats are also dying which are pollinators.

    Also, pollinators are very important. Pollinators make up ⅓ of our food system.”Pollinators pollinate tomatoes and other crops such as blueberries,cranberries and eggplant.” In other words, this is saying that pollinators pollinate a lot of fruits a vegetables. If pollinators didn't exist we wouldn't have fresh ripe tomatoes and much more. As you might know, pollinators don't only pollinate food,they also pollinate different plants and flowers.

Not only that but, people are helping address this Issue by building shrubs and bushes around their house. Not only that but people are also building beehives on the top of buildings. In New York to help repopulate the bees.”Leaves and shrubs, branches and flowers serve as substrates for butterfly eggs.” This will help all the pollinators because they love shrubs and leaves that's mostly where they construct their beehives.

   Then, We can speak out against pesticide use. People should try to be more careful of what we use on our weeds. All of these pesticides lead to a big consequences. Such as, birth defects,illnesses and even death. Monsanto is hurting our lives. They are not careful of what they use. In the article it says,”We're making flowers ends to attract more pollinators.” This means that we are making great big flat beds to attract all the bees. We are looking at different flowers to see what ones will the bees and other pollinators like best.
 There are consequences for losing pollinators. It includes self and hand pollinating. In the article it says,“The 20,000 or so species of pollinators are key to hundreds of billions of dollars worth of of crops each year.” So, this is saying self pollinating is not our only consequence. We are going to lose a substantial amount of money if we lose pollinators. Meaning, our crops are worth a lot but if we don't have pollinators to help us out then there will not be a great amount of crops to sell. Which will mean there will be a cut in money in our community.

     In conclusion, Pollinators are very important to our world, pollinators pollinate ⅓ of our crops that people eat. If we didn't have pollinators the work might get done successfully but it would take time and effort. Everybody should know how important pollinators are in our world. My concern is, pollinators such as bees are going to go extinct and it will change our whole environment.We could potentially lose money and crops. ⅓ of our crops live on the pollination of pollinators. That can't happen if pollinators are extinct. Massabesic Middle School is providing flat beds to attract pollinators. We are also putting on a zero waste program which helps us make our own composed right here on our campus. In other words, make sure we are all very wise about what we use. We can't stop using pesticides because we need them. We can all work together and find different ways to make our lives and crops healthier.


Michaela's Pollinating writing!


    There are many causes about pollinator populations decreasing. Lots of pollinators are dying because of pesticides on plants and that's not good for the pollinators . That is bad  because people are getting less food. With all the pollinators we had before the population went down people would grow there food and were getting ⅓ of food when they grew their food almost everyday. Now people are not even reaching that in 2 weeks and that's a problem. There are a lot of people helping too, what people can do out there is so simple even kids are doing it.
   First, Pollinators are dying because of pesticides getting put in plants. For example, they are dying because a bunch of local people are putting pesticides in their plants and selling the plants to customers and people are buying the plants not knowing about the pesticides in them. And after they buy it people put it out on their deck and yard for the pollinators like butterflies,bees,hummingbirds and bats to pollinate the flowers on the plants,however when the pollinators go into the flower to pollinate the pesticides that are on the plants and as soon as the pollinators starts collecting the pollen and the pesticides get into the pollinators system and it almost instantly kills them. “ Pesticides are one of the many anthropogenic insults threatening pollinators.” (April 25th 2016). So please start paying more attention to what plants you are buying and where you put them to grow.

  Next, Why are pollinators so important? Pollinators are pretty scary to some people especially bees but what people don't know is that they make up ⅓ of our food system. Between growing fruits and vegetables and pollinating our crops. Also, “ Pollinators pollinate tomatoes, and other crops such as blueberries,cranberries, and eggplant.” (Fish and wildlife habitat,May 2005). So pollinators are all there to help us not scare you. When honey bees bump into people like you don’t be scared because they don't want to sting you they want to give you food and pollinate your crops not people. And help keep the population up because no one wants to start pollinating their own crops.

   Also, another reason why pollinators are dying is because of habitat loss. But on the good side lots of people are helping with this even kids. People are making flat beds and planting flowers in the school yards and are not putting pesticides in the plants/crops. By putting flat beds out it gives them, “ Leaves and branches, shrubs and flowers and soil serve as sub straights for butterflies.” (Learn Edwards,July 24th 2014). So knowing that all of these things are out and getting planted without the use of pesticides so that we can not just have food but we can start seeing that the pollinators have a place to live.

  In conclusion, pollinators are disappearing because of habitat loss, and pesticides in plants. The importance of pollinators Is that they make up ⅓ of our food system. And there are a lot of people trying to help with the pollinators population. Some things that we will be doing at MMS is planting seeds to grow flowers and we will not be putting pesticides in our plants. Why we are not doing that is because our plan is try and help the pollinators not work against them!


Informational Writing Pollinators - Aidan D

   Pollinators are dying because farmers are spraying pesticides on their crops which can cause CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder) so the bees roam away from the hive. Pollinators are dying because of a variety of reasons. Major consequences can happen if the pollinator population keeps dropping we would lose ⅓ of the world’s food supply. The White House has gotten a hive of about 70,000 bees. At MMS we are planting milkweed for the Monarch butterflies since the Monarchs are endangered.

First,pollinators are dying because of a variety of reasons. One example is,“In 2006 the first cave floors were found covered with dead bats in the Northeast. (P.A.N)” This means that the bats in the caves that were found somehow got pesticides in their systems. If there hadn’t been pesticides,herbicides,etc. on the crops these bat may not have died.

 Second,the consequence of losing pollinators is that about ⅓ of the world's food would be gone. An example of this is,“More than ⅓ of the world’s food is pollinated. (Spivak,TED Talk)” This means that if we keep using pesticides the pollinators will either die or roam away from their home. The pesticides that are being used can harm the way pollinators,like bumblebees, act and think.

Next,one thing that has been done is that land will be protected for pollinators. One example is,“The government will help protect 7 million acres of land across the country. (P.A.N)” this means the government will protect 7 million acres of land across the United States. The White House has hives that can hold 70,000 bees all together.

Lastly,at MMS we are going to plant milkweed for the monarch butterflies so they have a place to get food on their way to the south. When the milkweed is planted it’ll get pollinated from the pollinators that can pollinated milkweed,since milkweed is toxic to some animals. If the Monarchs come to MMS on their way to Mexico,they’ll have food so they don’t starve on their way to the south.

In conclusion,if we let pollinators die from the farmers’ pesticides on their crops,more colonies will collapse for bees. Some pollinators’ immune systems can’t handle the toxins so they get weaker and weaker until they can’t do anything,like what happened to the bats in the Northeast. We’ll lose ⅓ of our food supply. The government will help protect 7 million acres of land for pollinators. Finally,MMS will plant milkweed to help the monarchs survive their trip south.
