Save the Sequoias Petition

Attribution: Save the Redwoods League

We need your voice in asking lawmakers in Washington, D.C. to take urgent action to protect our treasured giant sequoias from destructive wildfires. An estimated 20% of all the mature giant sequoias in the world have been lost since 2015, when wildfire magnitude and severity sharply increased in California’s Sierra Nevada. Many of these trees were 1,000-3,000 years old.Sign this petition from Save the Redwoods League and ask your lawmakers to take emergency action now. >>

As wildfires in the West have reached unparalleled severity, they pose an existential threat to giant sequoias, some of our most iconic forests. Having thrived through countless fires over millennia, thousands of these trees have perished in today’s climate-driven fires. Thankfully, significant funding, policy, and legislative solutions are available to protect the remaining giant sequoias and adjacent communities.

Save the Redwoods League, our partners, and other giant sequoia land managers have set a goal of treating 2,000 acres in the most at-risk groves before the 2023 fire season. This is a vital first step in preserving a future for these magnificent forests that are a part of our national heritage and attract millions of visitors.

Add your name here to send your email to Congress right now. The giant sequoias need your voice.

Bee Smart:Our best bet to stop this pesticide

Subject: Our best bet to stop this pesticide

 

Please scroll down for more information about Sulfoxaflor>>>>>>>Unable to remove  space from original email…….

 

The toxic pesticide sulfoxaflor is a known bee-killer, but instead of banning it, Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) actually reapproved the poison! Center for Food Safety immediately sued to demand the agency take it off the shelves and our legal team has been hard at work on this case for 2 years. We’re finally nearing the finish line, but we need your support to win.

Our lawsuit already forced EPA to admit that it unlawfully failed to consider the impacts of sulfoxaflor on federally-protected endangered species like the rusty patched bumble bee. But EPA asked the court to keep sulfoxaflor on the market anyway(!) — and we’re fighting back.

 

The court just ordered an additional briefing and will soon decide if it should revoke this toxic pesticide’s approval. This case is our best chance at stopping another bee-killing pesticide from being sprayed over millions of acres of crops, pushing bee populations further towards the brink of extinction.
