New York's Pollinators Need YOU!

New York's Pollinators Need YOU!

Almost a third of the food we eat every day relies on pollinators, mostly bees, but also birds, butterflies, bats, beetles, moths, and flies. Bees and other pollinators are vital to stable and plentiful food supplies, a healthy environment, and a strong economy.

But populations of New York State honeybees and other pollinators are crashing at an alarming rate. That's why we need the Birds & Bees Protection Act.  

This New York State bill creates a five-year moratorium on neonicotinoids--pesticides known to kill pollinators. We need the Assembly and the Senate to support the bill now--before it's too late.

Support the Birds and Bees Protection Act!

New Yorkers rely on bees and other pollinators to support the food we eat: berries (breakfast!), pumpkins (Halloween!), apples (pie!), cabbage, almonds, grapes (wine!), honey and more. New York State estimates that $1.2 BILLION of our crops are pollinator-dependent!

You can make a real difference for bees, birds, butterflies, and other pollinators by emailing your legislator. Your simple action will encourage New York State's Legislature to support the birds and bees protection act.
