Stop Trump Administration From Killing Endangered Bees

Target: Ryan Zinke, Trump Administration’s Nominee for the Department of the Interior

Goal: Stop delaying the rusty patched bumblebee’s addition to the endangered species list.

A Trump Administration order has forced the delay of the rusty patched bumblebee’s addition to the endangered species list. If the White House continues to delay the addition of this endangered species to the list, it will hasten its extinction.

The announcement late last year that the bee would be added to the list caused great celebration among conservationists because it would be the first bumblebee under federal protection. The bee’s population in some areas has fallen by 87 percent. If action is not taken, it will drop further.

The small insect has a tremendous impact on our environment. The White House made the delay in order to review regulations. However the administration has already shown itself to be one that does not have the well-being of our environment and its endangered species in mind. Sign the petition and let nominated Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke know that you expect him to continue the Department of the Interior’s mission to save this bumblebee.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Zinke,

Conservationists rejoiced when the rusty patched bumblebee, which holds an extremely important role in our environment by pollinating our flowers and fruits, was added to the endangered species list. However Donald Trump has delayed this move until the White House has time to look closer at the regulation.

The bee’s population has already decreased by 87 percent and continues to decline. If this delay is not brought to an end, Trump will be responsible for the death of an entire species. This bee is pivotal to our environment and must be protected. If you are appointed Secretary of the Interior, it will be your duty to ensure that endangered species like the rusty patched bumblebee are protected. I demand that you do your duty and end this delay once you take office.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. It seems that Trump just can’t wait to undo and destroy all the protections for wildlife that people have worked so hard to bring about.
    His order to delay the listing of this bumblebee as endangered is inexcusable and should be stopped immediately.

  2. “The human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future – deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities and the spread of disease.” — The World Watch Institute

    Saving bees is also saving humans and all the food we depend on. Trump is always saying how he knows how to make money and protect his people, but without bees, there are no humans.We must save these poor bees! And people who can help, find ways to build a bee haven in your area by planting bee friendly flowers etc.
