Google Earth Video Shows Threat to Caribou

Our paper choices really do have an impact all the way back in the forest, and sometimes they can come into conflict with the survival of amazing, important wildlife.

A 3 minute video (below) released last week by ForestEthics entitled, "Cutting Down Caribou," provides a startling perspective on clearcutting's impact on habitat in the Rocky Mountain Foothills of Alberta, Canada. Thanks to striking, creative use of Google Earth technology, ForestEthics gives us a reason to be concerned and to act accordingly as responsible consumers.
