U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,

American bumblebees once buzzed over backyards, fields and meadows all across our country — but today, its population has plummeted by 90% over the past two decades, and it’s vanished completely from eight states. It’s not too late to save the American bumblebee, but we need to act fast.

Initial findings by your agency were that new protections for this bee may be warranted. Given the sharp decline in this species, I urge you to move quickly to list the American bumblebee as an endangered species.
