Demand Action to Save Bees from Highly Toxic Pesticides
Help us reach our goal of 125,000 messages
Bee populations are plummeting. And scientists are pointing to toxic bee-killing pesticides known as neonicotinoids as a cause.
We’re fighting in court and partnering with other groups to demand action now to save bees, but we need your help.
Join us and 4 million Americans to tell President Obama to suspend the use of toxic bee-killing pesticides now!
These pesticides make the whole plant poisonous to insects, including the nectar and pollen, which bees eat. At miniscule doses the pesticides can kill bees outright, but even at doses that may not kill immediately, they impair bees’ ability to breed, forage, fight disease, and survive the winter.
Nearly one-third of our crops—including many vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds—depend on bees for pollination.
We cannot delay action any longer.
Take action today and help us ensure that these pesticides do not become the final straw for bees.
