NU alumna wants you to help protect pollinators


​​Nipissing University alumna Laura Kielek-Caster (BSc Biology ’15) has written an article featured in the Orillia Packet and Times that urges readers to help protect pollinators.

Kielek-Caster is an outreach educator and office administrator with Kids for Turtles Environmental Education, an educational and outreach organization working to bring a better understanding of and stewardship to the environment.

Did you know that we depend on pollinators for one out of every three bites of food?   Pollinators, such as bees, bats, birds, and butterflies, are essential to the majority of the flowering plants in our environment and to the production of over 130 different food crops. 

Read Kielek-Caster’s article here for tips on how we can encourage pollination, as it is critical to the continued safety of our food supply and environment.​
