Scientists are finally beginning to understand a little bit about our wonderful Boreal Forest … of which Britain was once a part. We need to do far, far more of this …

“Protection of Canada’s boreal forest, along with limiting greenhouse gas emissions, should be among the top global conservation priorities, and the work to protect it can only be led by Canada’s federal, provincial and Aboriginal governments,” the letter said. “Canada has the unrivaled opportunity to protect the world’s largest intact freshwater ecosystem and the responsibility to enact sound conservation and sustainable development policy to safeguard the boreal forest. The longer we wait to act, the fewer the conservation options that will continue to be available. Without prompt action, Canada may miss the opportunity to protect this global treasure.”
