New York's Pollinators Need YOU!

Neonics are neurotoxic insecticides that are used everywhere: from lawns to gardens to farm fields across the country.

These pesticides are also responsible for killing massive numbers of bees and other pollinators. We depend on pollinators to grow our food, and fewer pollinators could mean increased food prices, reduced access to healthier foods, and food scarcity that will hit low-income communities and communities of color especially hard.

Even worse, these pesticides are now showing up in the water we drink, the food we eat, and our bodies. Emerging research links exposure to neonics in the womb or early in life ...

Neonics are neurotoxic insecticides that are used everywhere: from lawns to gardens to farm fields across the country.

These pesticides are also responsible for killing massive numbers of bees and other pollinators.

Even worse, these pesticides are now showing up in the water we drink, the food we eat, and our bodies. Emerging research links exposure to neonics in the womb or early in life with developmental defects, heart deformations, muscle tremors, and memory loss. That’s why Mountainkeeper has joined forces with partners throughout the state to crack down on these toxic pesticides.

Tell Governor Hochul: Save Our Pollinators

Send an urgent message to Governor Hochul asking her to include the Birds and Bees Protection Act (A7429/S699B) in her 2023 State of the State priorities. The bill would make New York a national leader in safeguarding pollinators, waterways, people, and the future of our food supply by banning unnecessary and harmful neonic uses.
