To include local bees (Anthophila) in Wildlife (Protected Wildlife Species) Rules 2020.
#1Bees are important to the ecology. Bees are pollinators and not pests so they should never be killed for no valid reasonable reason.
Angeline Tan (Singapore , 2021-11-11)
#3I agree that bees should be protected by law. It makes no sense for Town Councils to engage pest exterminators to deal with bees and they will not stop doing so as long as the law allows it.
Rachel Chan (Singapore, 2021-11-11)
#6These Singaporean bees provide us with essential ecological services, and with rapid urbanization and habitat loss, we should be responsible for and protect them.
Matthew Lim (Singapore, 2021-11-11)
#7We need to save our bees as they are vital to the environment. They help our trees, plants and flowers to thrive. Singapore is a garden city. We need bees and they are harmless.
Lily Toh (Singapore , 2021-11-11)
#10I’m signing because I believe that Singapore is moving towards a new phase in transforming into a greener nation. This is supported by the efforts that Singapore made with the implementation of the SG Green plan 2030, first point being making Singapore a “City in Nature” and second being striving towards a “Green economy” by 2030. I truly believe that if Singapore wants to draw closer to the 17 SDG (sustainable development goals), we first have to support our local efforts in two main areas, financially to keep the business functional and implementing changed efforts to circulate our natural resources sustainably instead of destructively.

#17This is the best way to stop intentionally killing our local bees!
Xavier Tan (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#20I recognize the importance of bees to our ecosystem, our very survival. It is unthinkable that our government agencies are still resorting to extermination when they are the ones who are most informed. If this is the only way to save our bees then I'm all for it.
Eunice Leow (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#24Yes, bees are keystone species in maintaining the biodiversity of the flowering plants.
Yap Jiawei (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#26Bees are essential to the health of our natural and human ecosystems. Thank you for the good work protecting them!
Claryce Lum (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#28Bees are an important part of our wildlife ecosystem, with the dwindling population of bees in recent years it would be wise to keep them protected

#38We should understand the importance of bee in our eco system. They are not pest
Nan F Sho (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#41CarpenterBees are very non-aggressive, the males that collect food are stingless and even the females only sting if you handle them.
They are an essential part of the flora and wildlife in Singapore and should be protected in Singapore, just like I protect them in my garden.
SY Khoo (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#45Bees are critical to a healthy ecosystem and good indicator of how healthy our environment is. We should educate more and eradicate less.
PAULINE Wan (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#47Bees are so important to our ecosystem!
Yuhan Lin (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#51Used to use pest control for hive removals but then realised this is senseless to kill something natural and useful for nature. I've had several hives removed now and it just makes so much sense to let the bees thrive and work in partnership with nature.
Phillip Wang (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#60Bees are essential to the natural ecosystem!
Phoebe Swinn (Singapore, 2021-11-12)

Lisa T (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#78I’m signing because, I had the option to remove a new hive and chose the humane way. Because bees are so important to the broader eco system.
Because we live in their environment and they in ours - extermination should not be the default way to remove bees.
Alexandra Rochelle (Singapore, 2021-11-12)

#114Bee populations are falling, it is time Singapore applies measures to protect them, including bans on outdated practices.
Carole HUMBLOT (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#125The good health of bees is essential for themselves and the pollination of our crops. Humans must discriminate about insecticides NOW
Antoinette Martin (Worthing West Sussex, 2021-11-12)
#126Bees are important to our ecosystem, I hope it will get more support to create more awarness~
Jim Tan (singapore, 2021-11-12)

Conroy Tan (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#132Food is a vital part of my life. Bees make food happen. I operate a restaurant and a farm that rely entirely on pollinators for their fundamental supply chain.

Gary Ng (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#149Bees r vital pollinators to our food production n they r NOT pests!
Waun sun Chiong (Singapore , 2021-11-12)
#151Bees are part of our ecosystem and should be respected as a living thing just like any local species. I have often witnessed dead bees in my estate after an extermination and it really hurts to see hundreds of dead bees everywhere. Although there are some concerns of allergies and such, bees are usually not aggressive unless provoked. Extermination of bees called by the public is often due to fears and misunderstanding of bee behaviours due to the proliferation of popular culture depicting bees as dangerous creatures. If there really is concern for safety, there are many companies who can safely relocate the bees and thus not warrant for unnecessary killing of bees.
Latricia Tay (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#155I support the cause of city in nature. Not just talking but walking the talk.
Josh Zhao (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#157I support local honey.
Senthil Kumar (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#176Bees play an important role in pollination. We cannot be a city in nature if we cannot coexist with nature.
Justin Chee (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#178Bees are an extremely important part of the ecosystem. Finding out about the many varieties living in Singapore was eye opening. Please protect the bees!!
Giorgio Castellini (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#183I am signing this petition because bees are essential to all humanity. They must not be exterminated by our species.
Geraldine Hebras (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#184To resolve a report of a colony of bees, the easiest and most profitable way for pest control is outright extermination. Unfortunately this is also the cheapest route for town councils and government agencies.
By protecting bees, it does make the control of unwanted colonies more time consuming, but not impossible. Yes, it will cost more - as I have personally experienced with a bee colony on my premises, but a lot more fulfilling to see them relocated rather than exterminated.
Yung Lee (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#187Bees are so important to our entire ecosystem and they're really harmless (unless provoked). I witness my back neighbour's contractors brutally destroy a dwarf beehive after we told them it was right outside our window and we even told them to please pay a little to get it re-located but they just destroyed the tree and the bees. It's also harmful because our house is right there and I have young toddler. I don't understand how someone with such a big house cannot spend a little to remove the beehive humanly, or maybe it's just the contractors were being cheapskate.
Kenneth Kwok (Singapore, 2021-11-12)
#189Bees are important
Frank Cranky Lee (Sg, 2021-11-12)
#198Bees pollinate plants and do not harm people if left alone.
David Rose (Bedok, 2021-11-12)
#200These species are poorly understood but essential pollinators of native forest species. unregulated pest control services cause unrecorded mortalies, in effect harming the very resilience of the local. Forest ecosystems.
