Pollinators

Justin La Doux's avatar Justin La Doux

Pollinators are vital to creating and maintaining the habitats and ecosystems that many animals rely on for food and shelter. Worldwide, over half the diet of fats and oils comes from crops pollinated by animals. They facilitate the reproduction in 90% of the world's flowering plants. Without pollinators, the human race and all of earth's terrestrial ecosystems would not survive. Of the 1,400 crop plants grown around the world, i.e., those that produce all of our food and plant-based industrial products, almost 80% require pollination by animals. I have created 3 of the 8 sculptures that will represent pollinators. The Bee, Mosquito, and Butterfly are done. Currently I'm working on the Humming Bird, Bat, Moth, Beatle, and Ant.
