Pollinator Refuges are recently a newer crop being planted on PEI. Pollinators are organisms that help transfer pollen that fertilizes plants to produce seeds and fruit. Bees would be the most common pollinator in PEI, while others include butterflies, moths, wasps, flies, and hummingbirds. All these pollinators are critical to production of many crops and play an essential ecological role. Such crops are tree and berry fruit, canola, alfalfa, and squash.
