Here's... my email from yesterday:




A quarter of bee species have disappeared in the last 30 years.

Bayer and Syngenta's deadly pesticides are catapulting bees to extinction -- so we’re amping up our global campaign to stop them.

Can you chip in a little each month to power our bee-saving plan?

A,

A damning new study just revealed that we haven't seen a quarter of bee species since the 1990s.

Bee numbers are plummeting, and it's about to get worse. Bayer and Syngenta are using the pandemic as cover for dismantling the progress we've made on banning bee-killing pesticides.

Your role in saving the bees, A, is more important than ever.

If you chip in a little each month, just look at what you could win for the bees:

  • You'll expose the pesticide industry's disinformation campaign that's infiltrating universities.
  • You'll stop Bayer and Syngenta's attempts to undermine neonic bans in Europe.
  • And you'll expand our work into Africa and Latin America, supporting local groups fighting to stop Bayer and Syngenta from dumping their bee-killing pesticides in these regions.

We’re scaling up this fight like never before, but we simply can’t do any of this without you. Will you chip in a little each month to save the bees?

We’re in a global fight to save bees from toxic pesticides. These poisons have proven to be a leading cause of death of entire bee colonies. And research shows that bees exposed to these pesticides fly only a third of the distance that unexposed bees can.

But when SumOfUs members like you come together to demand bans on these pesticides, you win again and again.

Your victories across the European Union have been historic -- bans on neonics, thiacloprid, chlorpyrifos, and more -- and they've set the stage for the rest of the world to join and save the bees everywhere. We can’t let Bayer and Syngenta take that away.

We’ve got a big, ambitious plan to take on the pesticide industry and stop it from dismantling all the progress we’ve made -- and we know we can pull it off with you on board. Can you make a small monthly donation to save the bees?
