Saving North America's Last Frontier
From part of the largest coastal temperate rainforest surviving on the planet to the 1.6-billion-acre Boreal Forest, Canada offers opportunities for conservation on a scale that is unimaginable almost anywhere else on Earth.
From the Great Bear Rainforest that fringes the coast of British Columbia to the Boreal Forest that is the green heart of the continent, Canada is a land where caribou still haunt the woodlands and wolves still sing down the moon. It is a place of hope, beauty and change and it is one of the greatest conservation opportunities remaining on Earth.
