This article explores the Endangered Species Act's conservation efforts towards the Rusty-Patched Bumblebee as a case study that highlights the gaps in protections afforded to invertebrate pollinators. It focuses on how the law does not adequately protect endangered invertebrate pollinators from inadvertent pesticide poisoning and introduces the threat that this poses to our food system.
