Tell Governor Newsom: Save California's bees
Bees are dying at unsustainable rates, and one clear contributor is the widespread use of bee-killing neonic pesticides. I urge you to take action to restrict bee killing neonicotinoids (neonics) this summer and close the loophole that exempts pesticides on seeds from rules and limits.
Neonics are poisonous to bees, butterflies, and other wildlife. The pesticides attack bees' central nervous system, causing neurological damage, paralysis, and death.
California can become the tenth state to limit the worst uses of neonics, and doing so will reinforce our commitment and leadership on the environment. Pollinators should be protected, not poisoned. Please take action to protect pollinators and the environment that they depend on by signing bill AB363 when it comes to your desk.
