Birds, bats, bees, butterflies, beetles, and other small mammals that pollinate plants are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food.
- $40 billion worth of products (including healthy food and coffee) produced by bees and other pollinators every year, and that’s just in the United States
- 40% of invertebrate pollinator species, particularly bees and butterflies, face extinction
- 40 specially created insect portraits—20% of sales proceeds donated to organizations that help pollinators
Without pollinators we lose
Buy a pollinator photo and I’ll donate 20% to organizations protecting pollinators, because without food (and coffee) life is so over.
If you represent a museum store, botanical garden gift shop, butterfly house, or any organization helping pollinators and want to sell pollinator portraits or license their use, I would be honored to work with you. Please contact me for particulars.
