Saving Honey Bees
While the EPA continues to stall, new research suggests neonicotinoid pesticides may be harming more than just honey bees. Active ingredients seep into the soil and groundwater, and treated seeds are lethal to grain-eating birds.
The mounting evidence demands a moratorium on these pesticides until we better understand the long-term effects.
Urge the EPA to Join the Endeavor to Save Honey Bees
Monarchs are the only known species of butterfly to migrate each year, seeking abundant food in the summer and warmer climates during the winter. Unfortunately, modern pesticides are killing milkweed in the U.S., a primary source of nutrition, while illegal loggers destroy their habitat in Mexico. Take Action: Urge the EPA to intervene.
