Important Pollinators:

Native Bees, European honeybees, butterflies, insects, birds, and bats.

Neonicotinoids (Neo-nics)

These systemic Insecticides are lethal to bees and other pollinators.


Protect Our Pollinators is a nonprofit organization devoted to public education and to the conservation of pollinators and their habitats.


The most commonly      used herbicide, glyphosate (Roundup) is wiping out the Monarch butterfly.

- to save our endangered pollinators through  education and action.

Our Mission

Beekeepers are experiencing losses of their European honeybee colonies in part by the use of systemic pesticides, especially Neonicotinoids (Neo-nics) which are lethal to bees and other pollinators.
