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.
