The U.S. National Wildlife Refuge System is the world’s largest, most diverse collection of lands dedicated to preserving fish and wildlife. These lands are home to more than 280 species of protected plants and animals, as well as other wildlife including pollinators like bees and butterflies.

Yet federal officials allow private operators to grow commercial crops in these precious places, dumping hundreds of thousands of pounds of dangerous pesticides there every year. 

That’s why the Center for Biological Diversity submitted a formal legal petition asking for immediate action to end the use of agricultural pesticides on refuges and reverse a Trump-era decision that expanded the use of bee-killing pesticides and genetically engineered crops.

The refuge system was designed to protect wildlife, not the profits of commercial agriculture. Help make our refuges safe for all wildlife, including bees, butterflies and other pollinators.
