To ensure the survival of migratory pollinators, the landscapes they use must be preserved. These include their summer breeding areas, overwintering sites, and migratory corridors. Some pollinators, such as monarch butterflies and certain hummingbird and bat species, migrate thousands of miles, heading north in the spring and south in the fall, along trails of scattered habitats. This type of migration has been termed an “endangered natural phenomena.”
