Task 1: Spot A Pollinator

Task 1: Spot A Pollinator

Monday 1st June - Sunday 7th June 2020

 

Background

Nearly 90% of flowering plants depend on pollination by animals — mainly insects. In fact, a lot of the food we eat, including apples, cherries, chocolate and tomatoes, would not exist without pollinators.

 

Task

Look at the flowers in your garden or on a walk along your local street or in a park - can you spot a pollinator?

Record what animal the pollinator was by either taking a photo, drawing a picture or describe what type of animal it was.

Share your pollinator find with other PlantTaskmasters by posting on Twitter - remember to include @slcuplants and #PlantTaskmaster in your Tweet.
