Abstract:

The Status of Pollinators: In April, 2007, the National Research Council of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences published a 300 page book entitled “The Status of Pollinators of in North America”. The region considered as North America included Canada, the continental United States but not Alaska, Hawaii or U.S. territories. Along with threats to managed and feral honey bees (e.g. loss of bee pasture, competition, Colony Collapse Disorder and other diseases and introduced pests) the NAS-NRC study examined threats to native and exotic pollinating animals. The 18 month tri-national study and 15-person National Academy committee considered hummingbirds, flower-visiting bats and birds, insect pollinators including 4,000 species of native bees, beetles, flies, wasps, butterflies and moths. The findings and recommendations of this exhaustive NAS study are given especially with regard to what government agencies and land managers on private lands can do for pollinator conservation in the Sonoran and Chihuahuan deserts of North America. The North American Pollinator Protection Campaign (NAPPC) was established in 1999 by the Coevolution Institute to conserve pollinators and educate by establishing science-based partnerships. Recent accomplishments and goals of this organization will be highlighted. Early efforts to include pollinator-friendly (native flowering plants) as recommended revegetation or “cover crop” plants by the USDA-NRCS (Tucson Plant Materials Center) on AZ ranch lands are discussed. Selected images from a collaboration between artist Matilda Essig, ranchers and scientists to educate policy makers and land managers through use of large giclee prints of native Arizona grasses, will be presented.
