America’s honey bees are dying at an alarming rate. Last year alone, beekeepers reported a loss of 42 percent of the colonies they oversaw.
These helpful insects are essential for the production of flowers, fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts. To save the bees, it’s crucial we act now.
Add your name to this bee-saving petition now to support the Obama Administration’s honey bee rescue plan and encourage him to strengthen it.
In May, the Obama Administration announced a plan to reverse America’s honey bee decline. This groundbreaking plan will make millions of acres of federal lands more bee-friendly and put funds toward researching and using fewer pesticides.
But the plan could (and should) be even stronger. The administration should take bold steps to discourage the use of neonicotoids, a class of pesticides that has been increasingly linked to bee deaths.
Your signature can help save bees. Sign this petition now and tell President Obama that you support his bee plan, but want restrictions on bee-killing neonicotoids.
Thank you for taking the time to make a difference. Together, we safeguard the future of these helpful pollinators.
