Ontario pilot project

Page - May 17, 2011
The Ontario pilot project involves two forest management areas known as the Caribou Forest and the Abitibi River Forest covering 43,000 km2 of Boreal Forest. The project is identifying areas of high conservation value in these units. Under the CBFA, an Ontario Regional Working Group has developed joint recommendations for measures for conserving areas of critical caribou habitat and has put these recommendations forward to the Ontario government. Participants in this working group include Greenpeace, AbitibiBowater, Tembec, Wildlands League, David Suzuki Foundation, Weyerhaeuser and Ontario Nature
