Save the bees
- by: Greenpeace UK

Bees are fighting for survival, threatened by disease, climate change and pesticides including neonicotinoids.
Neonicotinoids have been shown to cause harm to bees, so their use as a seed treatment is currently banned in Europe.
But last week Environment Secretary Elizabeth Truss went against growing scientific evidence and accepted a request made by UK farmers to use the bee-harming pesticide again this autumn.
We need bees to pollinate so many of our crops and flowers. No bees means less food.
Join the call asking Elizabeth Truss to reverse this dangerous decision to allow bee-harming neonicotinoids in our fields.

To Rt Hon Elizabeth Truss MP,
Please reverse your decision to allow neonicotinoid use this autumn and help save the bees.
