Danger in the Nursery: Impact on Birds of Tar Sands Oil Development in Canada’s Boreal Forest
This report highlights the many ways in which tar sands development directly impacts bird populations. The report finds that millions of birds will be lost from tar sands development, including birds that have shown declines of up to 70% in the last 40 years. Some of the ways bird populations are reduced include tailings pond deaths, habitat loss and fragmentation, air and water pollution, and even industrial noise.
