Scientists are calling neonicotinoid pesticides a “Second Silent Spring”. Like DDT, once touted as a miracle product, neonicotinoids have far reaching unintended consequences on bees, pollinators, birds and more.
The scope of ecological damage is still unknown, as each subsequent study reveals new impacts. There is still time to stop the carnage. With your help, we can do it together.
#SaveTheBees is an initiative to gather the latest science, inform and educate the public, and communicate with decision makers. It takes time and money to do it. So far, we have had great success in bringing this issue to the forefront.
If you want to see us continue our important work, please become a monthly supporter and help us stop a Second Silent Spring. It might be a year, it might be two, but we CAN do it with your help.
If you are unable to commit to monthly support, please consider a one-time donation. Every little bit helps keep the lights on and the office running. We promise to put every penny to good use.
