Wildlife Preservation Canada was pleased to present a one-day meeting focusing on the conservation of at-risk pollinators on April 10, 2013.

Topics included current hands-on conservation work in Canada including large-scale restoration projects, the status of pollinators in Canada, citizen science and community projects, and policies related to species protection. Attendees also had an opportunity to comment on the roadblocks facing pollinators and pollinator conservation work in Canada, resources that may help, and possible next steps.
