Five percent of Canada's Intact Forest Landscapes Degraded/Fragmented Over 13 years

(2016-08-16) GFWC's new IFL layer showed a 5 percent (216,199 km2) decrease in Canada's pristine forests due to degradation and fragmentation between 2000 and 2013. GFWC’s analysis also shows 92 percent of the reduction in Canadian IFLs occurred in areas that are home to one endangered species, while 14 percent of reduction occurred in habitats of at least six endangered species. See a summary and maps of these and other key results on the Global Forest Watch Blog.
