UrbanBeeSF is a passion project. Your donation will be a tremendous help.
HUMANS ARE COMMITTING INSECTICIDE and it will not end well.
We must mobilize to protect insects! For bees, it is now or never. Native bees and honeybees are in serious trouble. Notice how the honeybee free-fall is front and center in the news? People will notice the loss of this species and it won’t be business as usual if the pollination system collapses. Big pesticide corporations and Monsanto must be convinced of the wisdom of regulating their products, changing how food is produced, or by entering the conversation in an honest way. We all eat food after all, and even shareholders hope for a future beyond the next fiscal quarter or two.
Monsanto is in the process of developing a GMO bee and is being touted as a bee savior for this work! But it is doubtful that the corporations that have brought bees (and most other species) to their knees, will now be able to save them by using the exact same business model. That business model has destroyed MILLIONS of years of evolution...in less than 100 years! Big chemical is incapable of creating a solution unless they are able to admit this truth.
YOU CAN DO SO MUCH! People are just as capable of EMPATHY as they are of apathy. Begin by not looking away...take a critical look at the problems and then start taking small steps. Empathy is a muscle and it gets stronger with practice. People are not necessarily born humane but most of us have a compassionate nature that can be developed.
If you want to help save bees and other pollinators begin by greening the city which will provide food and shelter for hundreds of other species. Plant something organic (from soil to seed to starters); keep a garden alive; sponsor a block of trees in your neighborhood; even create a window planter. Or better yet, volunteer with a beekeeper (so many need your help!) It's easy to feel helpless in our troubled times, but bees are telling you that you are the answer!
BE AN ACTIVIST! Go to the sites below to see what you can do to help stop big pesticide. And believe it or not, San Francisco doesn't need any more beekeepers or bees! To Really help save the Earth, begin locally, provide your city or town with a bee paradise by planting organic pollinator food now! You will bring back birds, insects and healthy soil in the process.
Consider what you VALUE and be grateful for what planet Earth freely gave to us. Give back to this planet before it's too late! It's the least we can do after taking so much!
