"The National Wildlife Federation and our affiliates look forward to working together with the Administration."
President Obama’s Pollinator Task Force has announced its National Strategy to Promote the Health of Honey Bees and Other Pollinators, as first reported by the Washington Post’s Juliet Eilperin. The Pollinator Health Task Force was created as part of President Obama’s 2014 presidential memorandum on pollinator health.
"The Obama administration is taking strong action to protect pollinators. These steps and other common sense actions will protect, preserve, and restore millions of acres of habitat, increase public/private partnerships on pollinator health, and raise public awareness of the importance of pollinators,” said Collin O’Mara, National Wildlife Federation president and chief executive officer. “The National Wildlife Federation and our affiliates look forward to working together with the Administration and other conservation partners to preserve the beauty and essential functions of bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other pollinators for generations to come."
In February, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced a partnership with the National Wildlife Federation and National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to protect and restore monarch butterfly habitat. Monarch butterflies have declined by approximately 90 percent in recent years, a result of numerous threats, particularly loss of habitat due to agricultural practices, development and cropland conversion.
