Spotted an Eastern #Bumblebee for the #BumbleBeeCount - it was happily collecting pollen near Coopers Park in #Yaletown on a #hibiscus bush. #
Capture a photo of a bumble and submit it to @foe_canada to help them learn more about the health & needs of these crucial #pollinators. #🦋 # # Pesticides have been linked to #ColonyCollapseDisorder (CCD), and the population levels of pollinators is in great decline!
The #PMRA (Federal agency regulating the use of #pesticides such as #neonicotinoids, #glyphosate, #atrazine etc) is failing to keep #Canadian and global citizens safe, as they allow "temporary permits", granting chemical use without all the safety reporting "required". Some products have been used for decades without ever submitting thorough safety data. And the PMRA data is hidden from the public, accessible only in their reading room.
What say our pal @justinpjtrudeau? Will he take his kids bumblebee photo hunting for a photo op, but then do nothing about CCD? #SaveTheBees#SaveTheHumans
