Save the bees

As bee populations drop around the world, endangering ecosystems and food production alike, we’re working to give bees the space they need to thrive.

Bees play a crucial role in our lives. But as our society uses more pesticides, their populations are plummeting. Fortunately, we know how to help them: protecting already-existing bee habitat, expanding habitat by planting pollinator-friendly plants in our own gardens and on public lands, and ending the worst uses of the pesticides that are killing them. Together, we can save the bees.
