Help: Stop Poisoning Florida's Birds!


Stop Poisoning Florida's Birds!


Still, this lethal pesticide is being used to control
adult mosquito populations in south Florida, even though
equally effective alternatives are available. Florida is
the only State willing to risk using fenthion. If you are
concerned and want to have a say in the protection of
Florida's environment, please read on.

Fenthion is currently being sprayed on some of the most
important migratory bird habitat in the U.S. in south
Florida. Migratory birds that travel as far north as
Michigan are at risk as they pass through this crucial
corridor. Birds known to have been recently killed
include: Piping Plover (endangered), Black Skimmer,
Dunlin, Western Sandpiper, Sandwich Tern, and Snowy Plover.

Stopping the use of fenthion will not affect the ability
of Floridians to control mosquitoes. There are many
alternative chemicals which are less harmful to birds and
preferred by all other states.

Though fenthion is currently legal, its use is being
reviewed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Please tell the EPA Administrator, Christine Todd Whitman,
that the registration of fenthion should be canceled
immediately. With less harmful alternatives available it
is time to halt the use of fenthion!

Only by taking action now, can YOU help halt the use of
fenthion and prevent irreparable harm to migratory birds
and to Florida's unique and highly diverse ecosystems!
