Canada's Spring Bird Migration Now Means 'Save our Boreal Birds'
Top Scientists Join Tens of Thousands from Canadian and international Conservation Groups Calling for Protection of Boreal Forest for Declining Canadian Bird Populations.
Top scientists will outline the latest stunning news about why across Canada, the future of so many boreal birds is at risk. They will provide immediate and clear recommendations to turn this trend around. They will be joined by conservation groups across Canada, who have undertaken a grassroots 'Save our Boreal Birds' campaign, calling for protection of Canada's boreal forest, home to billions of migratory birds.
Simultaneous events will happen in three cities (Ottawa, Toronto, Quebec City), with participation in six other provinces and territories (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland and Labrador, Northwest Territories, Alberta, and British Columbia).
