State and Tribal Protection Plans
Addressing Native Pollinator Concerns in State and Tribal Protection Plans
State and Tribal pollinator protection plans are increasingly looked to as a road map to reducing honey bee (Apis mellifera) losses and restoring native pollinator populations.
While every state and tribe will focus on its own specific concerns, there are some overarching issues that should be considered as they develop their plans.

In these recommendations, the Xerces Society seeks to share information about native pollinators and their needs in order for state plans to address the diverse concerns that managed and native pollinators face. Specific regional information to support plan development is available through the Xerces Society website and other resources.
