This autumn Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) will vote on rules that could make every farm in Europe more bee-friendly.

Our taxes pay for the Common Agriculture Policy. This pays farmers to plant vast areas with single crop and make heavy use of pesticides creating a "green desert" for wildlife including bees.

Changing the rules could help farmers take simple actions - like cutting pesticide use and rotating crops to help protect bees.

Take action

A safer future for bees is possible. Ask your MEPs to back bee-friendly farming.
