Protect Portland's Pollinators

Action: Wildlife Conservation

March 18, 2015   Action Alert ID# 196

 

All throughout the United States our country's bees, birds and pollinators are gravely threatened by the continued and widespread use of neonicotinoids. These toxic pesticides -- often applied to corn and soybean seeds, trees and plants sold in garden stores -- can make an entire plant poisonous, including its pollen and nectar.

Acute exposure to "neonics" can cause massive bee die-offs, such as the incident in an Oregon parking lot in 2013 when 50,000 bumblebees died. Many of these chemicals have been banned in Europe, and now cities like Eugene, Ore., and Seattle, Wash., are saying no more too.

With your help, Portland, Ore., can join these cities by passing a ban and setting a model for others soon to follow.

Come show your support for protecting pollinators by attending the hearing on it on March 25 at 2 p.m. in Portland City Hall. Come prepared to share 2-3 minutes of testimony on why we need to pass this pollinator protection ordinance. If you have any questions, email the Centerís Environmental Health Director Lori Ann Burd.
