Save the bees

We are working to save the bees - from asking Amazon to stop selling bee-killing pesticides to sharing bee-friendly garden tips - and you can help.

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.
