Opponents of a controversial construction project in Almonte, Ontario are pinning their final hopes on a rather unusual ally.

The tiny, and incredibly rare rapids clubtail dragonfly.

It’s hoped the endangered species will help put a halt to the expansion of the Enderdu Generating Station on the Mississippi River in the heart of Almonte. The habitat of any endangered species is automatically protected.
