Pollinator Protection and Enhancement
The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers promotes an ecosystem management approach to environmental stewardship. This management philosophy includes conservation, preservation and restoration of the lands and waters entrusted to the Corps, as well as those under its regulatory authority. Recent losses of honey bees and other pollinators such as birds, bats, and butterflies are an ecological as well as an economical problem that requires Federal agencies to increase efforts for their protection.
Pollinators are critical to our Nations economy, food security, and environmental health. Honey bee pollination alone adds more than $15 billion in value to agricultural crops each year. Through the actions outlined in the National Strategy to Promote the Health of Honey Bees and Other Pollinators which includes the US Army Corps of Engineers Pollinator Protection Plan, and by working with partners across our country, we can and will help restore and sustain pollinator health nationwide.
