Jim Williams has been watching birds and writing about their antics since before "Gilligan's Island" went into reruns. Join him for his unique insights, his everyday adventures and an open conversation about the birds in your back yard and beyond.
From a news release received this morning (Friday)
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has announced that genetically engineered (GE) crops and bee and bird-toxic neonicotinoid pesticides will be banned in National Wildlife Refuges. Crops are planted to feed wildlife in some refuges. The ruling impacts more than 150 million acres of federal land.
Beekeepers in Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula are celebrating a major victory over Monsanto. A district judge withdrew the corporate's permit to plant genetically engineered Roundup-ready soybeans on 625,000 acres of cropland. The judge determined that GMO crops pose a major threat to honey production.
