Everyaction,

We already knew that the widespread use of a dangerous class of insecticides called neonicotinoids is threatening pollinators nationwide. And now a new analysis from the Environmental Protection Agency shows that these poisons also threaten more than a thousand endangered plant and animal species.  

Tell the EPA to help protect critically imperiled species by banning the use of neonicotinoids.

The EPA’s analysis on the impacts of “neonic” insecticides on endangered species finds that they can harm all of the country's 38 endangered amphibian species and roughly three quarters of the rest of our endangered plants and animals. Hundreds of studies have already shown these poisons play a major role in population-level declines of bees, birds and butterflies.

Yet the agency continues to allow neonics to be widely used in row crops, orchards, nurseries and home gardens. They’re the most popular insecticides in the United States. 

Tell the EPA to protect endangered species by banning dangerous neonicotinoids.
