The Pollinator Pathmaker LAS Edition has been in bloom on the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin’s forecourt since June 2023. Covering an area of 722 square metres, more than 7,000 plants of 80 different species now provide a variety of food for pollinating insects. Pollinating insects in Berlin include butterflies, moths, beetles, wasps and even flies. The artwork, created by artist Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg, is a response to the alarming decline of pollinating insects, which are essential for the reproduction of many plants and the survival of ecosystems.

During the summer of 2023, the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin will host an interactive educational programme with various formats aiming to inspire young people to understand the crucial role that pollinators play in the environment, raising awareness for their needs.
