New York's Pollinators Need YOU! Call on the Legislature to Pass the Birds & Bees Protection Act.

New York's Pollinators Need YOU! Call on the Legislature to Pass the Birds & Bees Protection Act.

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 pass the bill now--before it's too late.

Pass 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 by signing this petition. Your simple action will encourage New York State's Legislature and Governor's office to PASS the BIRDS AND THE BEES PROTECTION ACT.
