Pollinators are critical for pollinating nearly 75% of the world's food crops. As well, over 80% of all flowering plants depend on bees, birds, bats and others to aid in their reproduction.
The Discovery Nature Sanctuary is giving native pollinators a home in a time when native bee habitat is declining. The pollinator garden also serves as an example of what you can do to help pollinators.
In 2023, the Discovery Nature Sanctuary was accepted into the Pollinator-Friendly Public Garden Program sponsored by Bee Better Manitoba (www.BeeBetterMB.ca). This organization promotes habitat creation and care for native pollinators. The program includes 20 other Manitoba pollinator friendly gardens .
