Update on Efforts to Ban Neonics: The Pesticides Threatening Bees, Birds and Human Health

September 27, 6-7:30PM

On Zoom


Join the Pollinator Pathway and NRDC for an update on state efforts to restrict the use of neonicotinoid pesticides. Speakers will cover the science behind the threats posed by “neonics” to pollinators, biodiversity, and our own health as well as neonics’ surprising prevalence in our environment. These widely used pesticides contaminate soil, water, and plant life on a nearly unprecedented scale, driving mass losses of birds and bees, and raising alarm bells for a whole host of wildlife, clean water, and human health. The webinar will also provide information on pending legislation we can impact--with a special focus on action needed NOW in New York.

We are excited to welcome back speakers Dan Raichel, Acting Director of the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Pollinator initiative, and Dr. Kathleen Nolan, President of the Physicians for Social Responsibility, New York Chapter, and Senior Research Director at Catskill Mountainkeeper, who joined us last year for a talk on neonics.
