Together We CAN make a difference.
Our bees are in danger again.
Toxic chemical companies are trying to get their banned
pesticides back on UK fields. An application was just submitted
to the government asking them to lift the ban on bee-killing
chemicals for some crops planted this autumn.
The powerful pesticides which
Europe banned last year are called neonicotinoids - and
they pose a huge risk to bees. Last month an influential
group of scientists concluded that these banned pesticides
dont just kill bees, they wreak havoc
with other insects and plants in the countryside too. 
A huge petition will make it
clear to the environment minister that she still needs to
protect our bees, not the toxic profits of bee-killing chemical
PS: Bees pollinate apples,
cucumbers, strawberries, tomatoes, cauliflowers, onions,
cabbages, broccoli, carrots and many many more of our fruit
and veg. Without bees, we wouldnt last very long!
So please help stop this new threat to their survival -
