So please take a moment to sign this petition:

Petition: Our Bees are in danger

A mega pesticide company called Syngenta has just made an emergency appeal to the government, after their product was banned across Europe last year, due to the risk it poses to our bees. David Cameron and his cabinet are going to decide whether to allow these banned bee killing pesticides to be used on fields across the UK on Tuesday.

This petition appeals to DC to put our bees above this company's profits.
