Harmful pesticides must be banned for good to save our bees

The health of our bees is non-negotiable. Bees and other pollinators are responsible for more than a third of the world’s crops. Without them, it would cost £1.8 billion a year in the UK to pollinate our crops.

We would all be in huge trouble if our bees were to disappear. But that gets more and more possible every day.

In the UK, we have already lost around 13 species of bee since 1900, and another 35 are currently at risk of extinction. When something as precious as our bees are under threat, we need to do everything we can to help them.
