Save Wolf Lake

The Wolf Lake ancient forest is such a gorgeous place. What a terrible shame it would be for it to disappear! 😕

Wolf Lake is surrounded by the largest ancient red pine forest in the world – an endangered ecosystem that remains in only 1.2% of its former extent.

The government of Ontario promised protect the ancient forest, but 13 years later it is still open to destructive mining and mineral exploration.

  1. Articles like this is always depressing to read. +_+ Sometimes, I really think I should always follow my motto….. Ignorance is bliss, especially if I have no power to change anything.

  2. What a tragedy. How sad that so many people are willing to destroy their ancient, irreplaceable natural heritage for a few dollars. The “restored” lands that mining operations leave behind, assuming local laws even require restoration, will never be the original forest. When it’s gone, it’s gone. Forever.
