“Our con­stantly in­creas­ing de­mands on na­ture are driv­ing wildlife to ex­tinc­tion. It’s not just ele­phants, fresh­wa­ter dol­phins and rhi­nos, but Cana­dian wildlife too. Cari­bou, south­ern res­i­dent killer whales, bur­row­ing owls: These Cana­dian species have been pushed to the brink by hu­man im­pacts on na­ture.”
