Take Action to Save Our Birds

The pesticide carbofuran is highly toxic to birds. In fact, just one granule of carbofuran is enough to kill a songbird.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is expected to rule on the fate of this deadly pesticide
this week. Your efforts could decide whether this toxic pesticide stays on the market or not.

Please fill out the form below to send your email urging EPA official James Gulliford to protect birds, fish and mammals by removing carbofuran from the market.

Your comments will be most effective if they are personalized.
