Long as money takes precedence over common sense we will continue the process of killing off the very things that enable us to survive.

Pesticides are the main cause still, if we used fewer pesticides on farms and in our own gardens the Bess would have a better chance and folks we can not eat without them.

So sad. But if we can put a man on the moon surely to Heaven we can think of something to save these ancient, necessary, creatures. It's not rocket science!!
