Protecting Pollinators explores the causes for the plummeting bee and butterfly populations .

We should thank a pollinator at every meal. These diminutive creatures fertilize a third of the crops we eat and in North America and Europe, bee populations have already plummeted by more than a third, and the population of butterflies has declined 31 percent.

Protecting Pollinators explores why the statistics have become so dire and how they can be reversed. Along with inspiring stories of revival and lessons from failed projects, readers will find practical tips to get involved, and keep these pollinators fluttering, soaring, and buzzing around us.

Jodi Helmer writes about food and farming while tending gardens and keeping bees on a small homestead in North Carolina. She is the author of six books, including Farm Fresh Georgia and Growing Your Own Tea Garden.
