Saving Our Pollinators

Pollinators are the motor the plant world depends on. These insects, birds and bats allow plants to reproduce and make the fruits and other foods we enjoy. They are everywhere, but they are also in decline. While crop scientists research exactly what is hurting these animals, the NC Botanical Garden is holding an exhibit called "Saving Our Pollinators" to educate the public.

Currently, the survey finds that the numbers of great sharks — such as Great White, Tiger, and Hammerhead sharks — have been steadily declining, but the number of shark bite incidents is increasing.
