Helping Pollinators in Peril

PEER and the American Bird Conservancy are leading a coalition of 65 groups asking the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to amend their existing pesticide regulations to better protect pollinators and birds. 

You can help us in this effort. The EPA is asking the public to comment on our proposal. By signing our petition, you will let EPA know you support our proposed reforms. 

The petition asks EPA to reverse its decision to allow companies to register pesticides without showing they are effective. This shocking decision has led to the overuse of pesticides, the death of birds and bees, and contamination of the environment.  

The pesticide industry is pushing back hard against our proposal. By signing this petition, you can help us stand with those inside and outside the government who support common sense reforms and our work helping pollinators.
