Boreal birds got a boost today with Alberta-Pacific Forest Industries Inc.'s announcement of its Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification says the Canadian Boreal Initiative.
The 13.6 million acre FSC-certified area of public land managed by Al-Pac is the first in Alberta and is the single largest FSC certification worldwide.  Together, Al-Pac's announcement and existing certifications by Domtar Inc. and Tembec Inc. make up the majority of Canada's 35.3 million acres of FSC-certified forest - the most of any country in the world.

Fall waterfowl migration is already underway in much of the U.S. and while most duck hunters recognize the importance of the prairie potholes, few know that a second region is equally critical for waterfowl. That other "duck factory" is North America's Boreal Forest.  Stretching from Alaska to Newfoundland, the Boreal Forest's unspoiled wetlands provide crucial breeding and staging areas for tens of millions of waterfowl every year. Ducks Unlimited is taking a leadership role in an ambitious effort to protect one-half of this vast "duck factory" while promoting sustainable development on the other half.
