EPA Must Act to Keep Our Hives Alive



It was 10 years ago that commercial beekeepers first reported widespread, unsustainable winter losses of their honey bee colonies. A decade after the alarm was first sounded on pollinator declines, results of the 2015-16 Colony Loss Survey show no sign of the crisis abating.
Beekeepers lost even more hives than last year - an average of 44% of their colonies. And more and more evidence is showing wild, native pollinators are in decline too.
We know that the crisis is no longer a big mystery - toxic neonicotinoid pesticides are playing a critical role in these unprecedented declines.
Tell the EPA to ACT on bee-killing pesticides Now! Not wait for more industry-funded data - but ACT NOW!
This June beekeepers, farmers, and people like you are coming together to organize the “Keep the Hives Alive Tour.” We’ll be driving around the country with a truck full of dead bees in order to raise awareness about the plight of pollinators and how toxic pesticides contribute to their decline,
The tour will end in Washington, DC on June 22nd with a big rally in front of EPA to urge the agency to take action on toxic pesticides and support sustainable agriculture.
We must ramp up pressure on the EPA to act NOW. Beyond Pesticides and our allies are aiming to reach 2 million petition signatures by June 22nd, but we need your help to reach our goal!
Help us reach 2 million signatures: urge EPA to step up and protect bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.
