|Welcome to the 10th Annual NAPPC International Conference generously hosted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture October 20 to 22, 2010. Attending a NAPPC Conference is one of the most active and engaging ways to put your muscle behind an issue that is a cornerstone in the protection of biodiversity, food safety and healthy wild and working land. The success that NAPPC has experienced in its short history is the direct result of hardworking, selfless volunteers who have, side by side and regardless of individual agenda, made good things happen for pollinators on a variety of fronts.About the Pollinator Partnership (P2) and the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign (NAPPC). The Pollinator Partnership (P2) works to protect the health of managed and native pollinating animals vital to our North American ecosystems and agriculture.
As one of its many projects, P2 manages the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign (NAPPC) a collaborative group of over 120 organizations and individuals that promote and implement a continent-wide Action Plan to encourage activities to protect the numbers and health of all pollinating animals.
If you are new to NAPPC, rest assured that these two days will be 48 hours of determined effort committed to protecting and enhancing the well being of the continent’s pollinating species, and you will meet some of the greatest individuals you will ever encounter. We asked that you request to be placed on a specific Task Force. Within this document, under Section 4, you will find the group to which you have been assigned. The Task Forces are made up of disparate, interested parties who work to accomplish one specific pollinator related task.
