What rhymes with “Oriole” and protects millions of birds of around 300 species? The Boreal Forest is that great northern forest that provides an unbelievable amount of habitat for an amazing array of colorful birds.
The Boreal Forest has been under attack from various industries that would greatly harm the mostly intact forest in places like Ontario. In a landmark decision, the Ontario Government has decided to protect 55 million acres of Canadian Boreal Forest.
Much of this decision comes from the efforts of over 1500 scientists worldwide that wish to protect 50% of the entire Boreal Forest. Even more so, the efforts of the Boreal Songbird Initiative can be credited with promoting the importance of this “bird factory”.
