See the world from a bird’s eye view. Or a bug’s. Or a bat’s. There are so many pollinators beyond bees—nearly 270,000 species worldwide. In this interactive exhibition, you can explore the fascinating world of these vital creatures. They keep our planet healthy. Food plentiful. Flowering plants diverse.
 
Pollinators are in trouble. Habitat loss, pesticides, climate change, and other threats have dropped their numbers. Without pollinators, our world—and our lives—would be drastically different.

Do you know what pollinators to thank for chocolate or tequila? Can you spot the difference between flies and bees? This exhibition features interactive elements, videos, illustrations, and specimens to share these fascinating pollinator stories.
