BEES need Your Protection.
I’m fighting to save bees from pesticides — can you help?
Because of the use of bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides, bees and other pollinators are dying-off at an alarming rate. This has dire implications for our food supply and domestic agriculture industry.
The federal government’s response to this crisis has been totally inadequate – but that could soon change.
In June, President Obama created the Pollinator Health Task Force with the goal of focusing federal efforts to research, prevent, and recover from pollinator losses.
Now, for the first time, the Pollinator Health Task Forceis accepting public comments on what it should do to protect bees and other pollinators.
We know a ban on bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides is what’s needed to save the bees, but we only have a few days to pressure the task force to act before this crucial public comment period closes.
I just urged President Obama’s Pollinator Health Task Force to save bees and other vital pollinators by banning deadly pesticides.
I think you should too:
