More than a billion pounds of pesticides are used in the United States each year.

While many assume this use is highly regulated, the reality is that the Environmental Protection Agency has for decades refused to assess the impacts of pesticides on endangered species or look at some of the most basic impacts on human health, like farmworker exposure or how our bodies react to being exposed to multiple pesticides at once.

Join us for an hour to learn what the Center is doing to ensure that endangered species and people, especially vulnerable farmworkers and children, are protected from dangerous pesticides and how you can help.

About a quarter of pesticides used in the states are deemed too dangerous to be used in the European Union and other major agricultural nations. Pesticides are also a leading cause of pollinator declines, but are still heavily used even on public lands set aside for wildlife protection.

There’s much work to be done to protect all of us from pesticides.

YOUR UNIQUE REGISTRATION LINK WILL BE EMAILED TO YOU FROM ZOOM. THIS WILL BE THE LINK YOU USE TO JOIN THE CALL. PLEASE LOOK FOR IT (POSSIBLY IN SPAM) AND KEEP IT FOR YOUR RECORDS.

NOTE: By joining this webinar, you agree to receive communications from us so we can work together to keep the wild alive.
