Look at the sky. It’s not dark and black and without character. The black is in fact deep blue. And over there! Lighter blue. And blue in through the blueness, and the blackness, the winds swirling through the air… and then shining. Burning, bursting through! The stars, can you see how they roll their light? Everywhere we look, complex magic of nature blazes before our eyes.
“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
The Canadian Boreal Forest is one of the biggest forests and wetland ecosystems which are still left on the face of the earth (a Boreal Forests are also known as ”Taiga”). The Canadian Boreal Forest has a very large populations of wolves, grizzly bears, and woodland caribou. The Canadian Boreal Forest contains about 1.5 million lakes which are 80% earth’s fresh water (excluding frozen areas) also some of Canada’s largest lakes can be found there. 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.
