Canada is loaded with habitats: wildlife havens where wolverines prowl, bats swoop, insects buzz, and reptiles slither. It’s important to know what’s happening with habitats in your area. If a habitat is unhealthy it affects all the organisms living within them – even you! You can assess your ecozone’s general vitality and even prescribe “treatments” to help them get better.
What is an ecozone?
Wildlife and ecosystems ignore geographical boundaries. To make it easier to study the vast diversity of natural communities in Canada, scientists have divided the country into 15 terrestrial ecozones.
