About the Pollinator’s Health Fund

Pollinators, including bats, butterflies, honeybees and hummingbirds, provide essential services in nature and are necessary for healthy, productive agricultural ecosystems. Pollinators contribute more than $24 billion to the US economy annually, and insect pollinators support crop yields.

A variety of domestic crops rely on pollinators to reproduce, as pollinators ensure the development of full-bodied fruit and fertile seed sets in many crops. Unfortunately, declining populations of both wild and managed pollinators threaten these crops.

New technology, knowledge and best practice guidance tailored to specific regions and land uses has the potential to improve pollinator health across the US. Researchers funded through the Pollinator Health Fund are working to address social and economic challenges faced by beekeepers, farmers, homeowners and other land managers across the US.

FFAR created the Pollinator Health Fund to combat the economic and environmental impacts of declining pollinator populations in the US and improve pollinator health and habitats.
