Ontario protects vast boreal forest to fight climate change

Date : 16th July 2008, Source : ENS



TORONTO, Ontario, Canada, July 14, 2008 (ENS) - Half of Ontario's northern boreal forests will be protected from unbridled resource development so these trees can continue to fight global warming, under a conservation plan annouced today by Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty. The government of Ontario will extend permanent protection to at least 225,000 square kilometers (86,872 square miles) of the Far North Boreal region, the premier said - an area almost twice the size of England.
