The Walrus Tumblr

Art from the magazine about Canada and its place in the world

03/06/2013 · 5 Notes
The boreal forest is full of wildlife, with reptiles and amphibians (forty-six species of each), mammals (152) and birds (383). In all, twenty-three species are currently endangered, another sixteen are designated as threatened, and sixty-five are considered vulnerable. The fate of their home—and of our boreal forest—rests squarely in our hands: the Canadian public owns 94 percent of it. Photograph by Eamon Mac Mahon (eamonmacmahon.com).
