Action Alert: Pollinators Need Your Help Today!

We need your voice to help defend pollinators.
Pollinators need YOUR voice!
Help Support Pollinators Today!
Please join the Xerces Society in asking your U.S. senators and representatives to pass two bills that will provide critical protections for pollinators.

Monarch and Pollinator Highway Act of 2021
This act would provide grants to benefit pollinators on roadsides and highway rights-of-way. Funding will support pollinator-friendly roadside habitat through planting and seeding native grasses and wildflowers, and monarch host plants.

WHY THIS ACT MATTERS
Pollinators are critical to our food supply and are experiencing precipitous declines. Roadsides offer millions of acres of land that act as wildlife corridors, which can support pollinators by providing foraging, resting, nesting, and overwintering habitat.

Monarch Act of 2021
The Monarch Act will provide funding for conservation activities to restore, enhance, and manage overwintering and breeding habitats of monarch populations in the western U.S.

WHY THIS ACT MATTERS
Once common, the monarch butterfly is experiencing an alarming decline. In the western U.S., the monarch overwintering population is a mere 0.01% of its historic size. As the western monarch population edges closer to extinction—and with no federal or state protections—monarchs need the resources that this act will provide to restore their habitats at a critical time.

Your voice is needed. Please let your representatives know these two acts have your support!
