By observing pollinators in your gardens, local parks, along country roads, basically anywhere ﬂ owers are growing, and then sending in your observations, you can help scientists to better understand the importance of pollinating insects so that steps can be taken to preserve them. In order for you to contribute useful observations, it is essential to follow the instructions described in this Manual. Pollinators can only be monitored successfully if all participants record their observations systematically and consistently.
