Save Our Bees petition

Timely after my previous post! Please sign the petition to urge the current environment minister in the UK to support a European vote to stop particular pesticides being used.
These nerve-agent pesticides (neonicotinoids) are being blamed Worldwide for declining bee numbers and the Government has an opportunity to stop the problem before it becomes a catastrophe.

There is some debate as to whether these 'neo-nics’ will accelerate the decline in the bee population. Personally, I'm not convinced it's worth the risk.

Please sign the petition!
