Friends of Blackwater and the Center for Biological Diversity both submitted comments on the Rusty Patched Bumblebee Draft Recovery Plan created by the Fish and Wildlife Service. In addition to our letter, FOB submitted nearly 300 petition signatures and comments from FOB supporters like you! Primarily, we were concerned that the Recovery Plan failed to provide adequate protection from pesticides, destructive developments in RPBB habitat, and specific monitoring programs. You can read both FOB’s and the CBD’s letter below.
