Tell Ontario to prioritize habitat protection
"The Ontario government wants your feedback on its new Forest Sector Strategy. It’s crucial that you voice your concerns about the proposal, which prioritizes industrial logging expansion over habitat protection for vulnerable species, and risks opening even more of Ontario’s forests to business.
Even at current logging levels, the province’s biodiversity is threatened. With the forest industry already exempt from the Endangered Species Act’s recovery requirements, habitat disturbance is proceeding at a pace that is driving species such as the at-risk woodland caribou toward local extinction. The new proposal puts Ontario’s plants and animals at even greater risk."
