Support end to logging in Algonquin Park
Algonquin Park is the jewel in the crown of Ontario’s parks, evoking classic images of Canadian wilderness. Yet up to 70% of Algonquin is fragmented because of logging – making it the province’s only park where logging is still authorized.
It may seem hard to believe, but due to logging there are more roads in Algonquin Park than Metro Toronto! It’s time Ontario respected the latest science and recognized that logging is incompatible with a protected area.
On October 7, 2014 Ontario’s Environmental Commissioner released a report calling for the end of logging in Algonquin Park. CPAWS welcomes the Environment Commissioner’s report and is now calling on Ontario to act quickly to end logging in the park, and begin the process of restoring Algonquin’s damaged ecosystems.
