Thank you for signing our petition to help protect rusty patched bumblebee habitat. We will deliver it to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
We’ve seen success before to protect bees and the places they call home. In 2017, we helped convince the Fish and Wildlife Service to add the rusty patched bumblebee to the endangered species list in the first place. More recently, we helped secure $10 million in federal funding for states to create pollinator-friendly habitat. Planting more flowers for bees, butterflies and other pollinators will help boost bee populations that are struggling to survive.
But there’s more to do to save the bees, like banning some of the worst uses of bee-killing pesticides. We need your support to continue advocating for special bees like the endangered rusty patched bumblebee. Will you donate today?
