Through the Boreal Songbird Initiative, we have become aware of an interesting book offer.
From March 16th until March 20th, the book Tar Sands: Dirty oil and the Future of a Continent by Andrew Nikiforuk will be available completely free in a PDF download.
This book discusses how this type of oil extraction is more harmful than others. The extraction technique is destroying large areas of the boreal forest and impacting birds in a grave way.
We will definately be checking this book out and encourage others interested in bird conservation to check it out.
