The Pollinator Partnership is an organization dedicated to the environmentalist agenda of preserving animal pollinators through educational efforts and conservation.

[2] He is currently the chairman emeritus of the Pollinator Partnership. [3]

Activities

The organization runs and participates in a number of programs. The Pollinator Partnership’s Bee Friendly Farmer program provides resources to farmers and an online certification program for bee-safe farming principles. [4] The organization also runs Monarch Wings Across America, a program that encourages the cultivation of monarch-friendly habitats by planting an assortment of nectar-supplying plants. [5]

The Pollinator Partnership also participates in the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign, a growing coalition of public, private, and non-profit partners working to encourage the health and conservation efforts of migratory pollinators. [6] Partners include a variety of international agencies spanning Canada, Mexico, and the U.S., as well as corporate partners such as Bayer, Boeing, and Waste Management. Non-profit partners include organizations such as the American Farm Bureau Federation, Defenders of Wildlife, National Farmers Union, and the World Wildlife Fund. [7]

Finances

According to 2018 tax returns, the Pollinator Partnership received more than $1.14 million in contributions and grants and distributed grants to universities for research, among them the University of Illinois and the University of Vermont. The organization recorded a total revenue of $1.19 million in 2018. [8]
