The Canadian boreal forest is one of the biggest forests and wetland ecosystems, which is still in existance today (Boreal forests are also known as Taiga). The Canadian boreal forest has a large population of wolves, grizzly bears, and woodland caribou. The Canadian boreal forest contains about 1.5 million lakes which are 80% of earth’s fresh water (excluding frozen areas) and are also some of Canada’s largest lakes. In Alberta, around 90% of cutlines (almost a decade later) have not yet regrown and mark the earth as man made scars (Cutlines are narrow and linear features created as a part of geophysical surveys). Instead cutlines accumulate water and become small canals.
