Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation is participating in the nationalParks for Pollinators campaign, which is aimed at raising public awareness of the importance of pollinators and positioning parks as national leaders in advancing pollinator health. Organized by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), the Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz event is held during September.
Pollinators are a vital component of our ecosystem, and an essential link to the world’s food supply. According to the White House’s Pollinators Health Task Force, during the last 30 years, the United States has seen a steady decline of pollinators (such as bees, bats and butterflies) at an alarming rate of 30 percent annually — making it vital to take action on pollinator protection.
What is a BioBlitz?
An event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area over a short period of time to create a snapshot of an area’s biodiversity.
