Tell the EPA to protect our wildlife

When a species goes extinct, it's gone -- forever -- and any of the other plants or animals that depended on that species for survival are in trouble.

Neonics, common pesticides used throughout the country, have played a crucial role in the collapse of bee species across the country. On top of this threat to our best pollinators, these pesticides likely pose a risk to as many as 3 out of 4 species listed under the Endangered Species Act.

So why are we still allowing them to be sprayed in our fields, parks and gardens? Neonics are bad for our best pollinators and bad for our most vulnerable species. For that reason, I'm urging you to ban the sale and use of neonics to regular consumers.
