Lovely Labrador

Our friend and member of the International Boreal Conservation Science Panel Dr. John Jacobs, Professor of Geography at the Memorial University of Newfoundland, recently took a trip to some remote parts of Labrador. He was able to take some great photos of unique boreal ecosystems, which I’m sharing below:
