Monarchs and other butterflies are pollinators, which play a pivotal role in shaping the world around them. Pollinators gather and spread pollen from plant to plant, helping to create natural diversity. They enable growth of many plants and crops, and generate something larger than themselves. Pollinators are powerful instruments of change.
