The mission of Pollinator Partnership, (P2) the D.B.A. for The Coevolution Institute, is to catalyze stewardship of biodiversity. P2 places a high priority on efforts to protect and enhance animal pollinators (invertebrates, birds and mammals) and their habitats in both working and wild lands. Pollinator Partnership facilitates the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign (NAPPC), a tri-national collaboration working to promote awareness and scientific understanding of pollinators and foster activities to enhance pollinators and their habitat.

NAPPC has standing committees and task forces and serves as a forum to identify and discuss pollinator issues, as a mechanism to organize and disseminate information about pollinators, and as a vehicle for promoting and undertaking various pollinator projects. Pollinator Partnership and NAPPC have a proven track record of accomplishments in getting disparate stakeholders to set aside their differences at the door and find ways to achieve common ground, collaborate and achieve positive results.

Representatives from a number of key federal agencies responsible for managing public lands or helping private landowners improve their conservation stewardship are actively engaged in NAPPC. Memoranda of Understanding (MOU's) between P2 and major federal agencies or significant stakeholder groups are in place, signaling a strong commitment to work together for the benefit of pollinators.

Seven MOU's have been finalized to date with individual federal agencies:

  • U.S. Department of Agriculture-Forest Service and Natural Resources Conservation Service.
  • U.S. Department of Interior-U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Geological Survey, National Park Service and Bureau of Land Management.
  • Department of Defense.
  • National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD)
  • Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Bat Conservation International
  • Partners for Sustainable Pollination
