DescriptionThis Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) site presents a 12-page illustrated article on Canada's vast tract of boreal forest of ca.1.3 billion acres, one of the world's largest forest ecosystems, which is surprisingly almost intact. The article offers an in-depth look at these forests, including an overview of environmental threats posed by industrial development (mining, oil and gas, timber, hydropower). There are links for learning more about boreal forests, including a map of the world's boreal forests, and readers are invited to participate in online campaigns to protect boreal forests.
