About the WPP-PPS network

The WPP-PPS network brings together people who are interested in wild pollinators, concerned about their resilience and survival, and motivated to help.

We seek to raise awareness, share information and resources, offer learning opportunites and events, support pollinator habitat protection & creation, and encourage appropriate, responsible action.
