A shocking new United Nations study finds that bees, butterflies, and other pollinators are in even greater danger than we previously thought -- and may even be at risk of extinction.
Conducted by a top team of 70 U.N. scientists, the report is the first-ever global study on the health of bees and other pollinators. And the results are much, much worse than many expected.
Meanwhile, Bayer, one of the world's biggest producers of bee-killing pesticides, is SUING the European Commission to lift its ban on the pesticides that are driving bees toward extinction.
We're organizing a major action to demand that Bayer drop its suit and stop killing bees. Will you chip in to help save the bees before they're gone?
Without bees and other pollinators, the world will face a global food crisis.
Almost 90 percent of all flowering plants rely on pollinators -- including 75 percent of the world's food crops.
In other words, when bees die, people starve.
Of course, we've known for a long time that bee populations are in decline. But this study shows that the threat of global extinction has risen to a whole new level.
It's perhaps the biggest wake-up call we've gotten yet -- and that's why we're demanding that the world's biggest producers of bee-killing pesticides take these deadly products off the market.
