Save Birds, Bees, and Other Pollinators from Toxic Pesticides
Neonicotinoid pesticides, or "neonics," pose serious threats to birds and insect pollinators. Studies have shown worrisome impacts, from reducing birds' ability to migrate to diminishing overall bird diversity in areas where neonics are used.
Despite all the evidence, the Environmental Protection Agency has yet to ensure proper oversight of these dangerous chemicals.
Congress has the opportunity to stimulate action on this issue. Legislation was just reintroduced to restrict neonics, establish a Pollinator Protection Board, and improve monitoring of pollinator populations.
Tell Congress to support the Saving America's Pollinators Act (H.R. 4079), protect birds, and strengthen regulations on toxic pesticides.

Subject Line: Please Support Stronger Regulation of Pesticides that Harm Birds
I am writing to ask your support of legislation providing reasonable restrictions on pesticides known to be harmful to birds and insect pollinators. Please be a cosponsor of the Saving America's Pollinators Act (H.R. 4079), which will establish a Pollinator Protection Board and cancel the registration of neonicotinoid pesticides.
Studies are finding neonicotinoids harm birds and bees, and are also building up in the environment. The European Union has suspended the use of neonicotinoids, protecting wildlife while giving scientists time to study the chemicals more thoroughly.
The time is now for the United States to take similar action to safeguard birds, bees, and other pollinators from these dangerous chemicals. Thank you in advance for co-sponsoring the Saving America's Pollinators Act, helping to ensure a bright future for our country's wildlife and all Americans.
