#FastFact: Cecropia moths are Ontario's largest moth species with wingspans of up to 16 cm wide!⠀

We're heading back to court this week to speak up for our wild pollinators, along with @davidsuzukifdn, @wildernews & @foe_canada!⠀
.
The government and three multinational pesticide companies are asking the court to dismiss our lawsuit to protect #pollinators from two widely-used neonicotinoid pesticides before it is heard.
.
We're not giving up.
