Pollinators on the Move

Investigate flowers through the eyes and actions of animal pollinators!

Pollinators on the Move is a two-part experience in which participants explore flower pollination through the eyes and actions of animal pollinators. The activity Be a Pollinator provides an interactive experience with three pollination syndromes to investigate why animal pollinators are attracted to specific floral traits. The activity Pollinating Game explores ecological interactions using a case study of a Madagascar Sphinx moth and Orchid. Participants consider how ecological relationships and interactions may affect fitness, lead to dependence, and result in coevolution. Pollinators on the Move was developed by NCSE Graduate Student Outreach Fellow Taryn Dunivant.
