DO YOU WANT TO BECOME POLLINATOR-FRIENDLY?
Each of us can help to preserve and protect pollinating insects. Every citizen can get involved by placing flowers in their balcony or terrace, but this is not enough to save pollinators! Municipalities, farmers and all those who manage green areas play a key role in the conservation of bees, butterflies, hoverflies, wasps and beetles. Thus they should become 'Pollinator-friendly'!
Life4Pollinators has developed guidelines with description of pollinators, their threats and the specific best practices for the management of pollinator friendly urban green areas and agro-ecosystems. The qualification of "Pollinator-friendly'" is intended to enhance and recognise the commitment of virtuous municipalities, farms, schools and associations, in order to increase the biodiversity and create a network for its protection!
- ARE YOU A MUNICIPALITY? LIFE4Pollinators has prepared a declaration: sign it and adopt it to help pollinators. By doing this, cities can increase the availability of habitats for wild pollinators and become important ecological corridors.
Currently, the “Pollinator friendly” municipalities are:
SAN LAZZARO DI SAVENA (BO, Italy)
CASALECCHIO DI RENO (BO, Italy)
MONTERENZIO (BO, Italy)
ARE YOU A FARMER? LIFE4Pollinators has developed a code of conduct: sign it and you will receive the pollinator-friendly farm certificate. Agro-ecosystems are priority habitats for the conservation of insects: the project wants to increase farms that adopt good practices and respect biodiversity!
