Established in 2017, the alliance is a partnership representing more than 20 conservation organizations, including state and federal government, non-governmental organizations  and private entities coming together to support the health and diversity of pollinators in North Carolina through protection, restoration and creation of pollinator habitat.

The alliance's objectives are:

  • Facilitate the protection, restoration and creation of pollinator habitat across the state.
  • Develop and disseminate best management practices to enhance habitat and pollinator diversity.
  • Facilitate the production and procurement of native pollinator plants and seeds.
  • Identify and advance research opportunities.
  • Foster communication among partners, stakeholders and interested parties.
  • Collaborate/coordinate with all levels of government to establish protective mechanisms for pollinators and their habitat.
  • Act as a clearinghouse for pollinator science and information.
