Holocaust of bee deaths

Pollinators at risk from pesticides

Billions of bees are dying. In the USA already there are not enough honeybees to pollinate crops. In Europe beekeepers are also losing some 10% of their bees each year.  This is a growing environmental holocaust that threatens all as without bees for pollination our whole food chain is exposed to this threat courtesy of Big Pharma organisations. 

Scientists are now sounding the alarm about pesticides being toxic to bees. They have been saying that for some time  and we do use far more pesticides on crops than is needed.   Like oil companies over climate change, the big chemical companies that sell pesticides fight back with corporate-funded science that questions evidence, and gives politicians an excuse for delay. 

But this year we could see a crackdown on these toxins in Europe, Canada, and the USA.  Avaaz claims to have mapped a plan to make it happen by turn pesticide scientists into the whistleblowers and testifying to officials and Ministers. Already, there are nowhere near enough honeybees !

  • Run urgent studies showing how crops will flourish without the toxins ;
  • Launch massive public campaigns with political champions to win the bans.
  • Scientific studies and global public campaigns are expensive. 
  • Avaaz may be the only crowdsourced funding model in the world able to raise enough, fast enough to fund global-scale, grassroots-supported studies into how we farm without these poisons, and to decisively challenge the compromised science of Big Pharma.
