UPDATE 12 June 2017: We've just heard that Health Canada has delayed its decision to ban bee-killing pesticides -- and its facing even greater pressure from industry groups to drop its plans altogether.
They're feeling the pressure, and it's because of you. Can you chip in today to help make sure this historic bee-ban goes ahead?
Beekeepers have warned us for years about entire bee colonies dying off and disappearing.
Now researchers are telling us more than 700 wild bee species in North America are headed toward extinction -- that's more than half of the bee species tested.
Canada has announced plans to ban imidacloprid, one of the most widely used bee-killing pesticides in the world, but the pesticide industry is lobbying hard to stop the ban being introduced.
With so many bee species headed to extinction we’re redoubling our efforts to convince Canada to ban this bee-killer without delay.
If we raise enough money we’ll buy full page “Save the Bees” ads in the Ottawa Hill Times -- the paper that politicians read -- to make sure they know why banning bee-killing pesticide is essential.
Will you chip in today?
