Join American Bird Conservancy’s upcoming webinar for a discussion on the impacts of pesticides, how existing regulations are working – or failing – to protect the environment, and how individuals can reduce pesticide use at home.
An estimated 72 million birds are killed by pesticides and other toxic chemicals every year. Birds are not the only victims – overuse of harmful pesticides has led to insect population declines and adverse human health effects.
Yet these dangerous chemicals are widely available and used for everything from food production to home gardens.
