Canada's Boreal is one of the last frontier forests in the world. It provides essential services that human society depends on, like:
- Purifying the air that we breathe and the water we drink
- Slowing the pace of climate change by being the largest terrestrial storehouse for carbon
Most of the planet's other great forests have been lost to industrial development, but Canada's Boreal is still home to millions of migratory songbirds, majestic caribou herds, a diversity of fragile plants and large predators like lynx and wolverine.
