Indigenous partnerships hold the key to conserving Canada’s boreal forests
This summer up to three billion birds will flock to Canada’s boreal forest to nest and raise their young. Once they arrive, they will find an abundance of food, fresh water and wetlands stretching from the Yukon to Labrador. This bounty draws nearly half of all bird species commonly found in Canada and the United States every year. Then in the fall, the birds fly south to pollinate plants and spread seeds across the hemisphere.
