What's even more astonishing is that the boreal region is home to around 60% of all Canadian landbirds and nearly 30% of those in the United States and Canada combined! That's a whole lot of chirping and fluttering.
Just like the lush South American rainforests and the precious remaining forests in the USA, it's crucial that we come together to protect these natural havens. Trees are not only essential for our feathered friends; they're the Earth's lungs. Migratory birds rely on these forests as stopovers during their incredible journeys. Imagine a world without the enchanting melodies of orioles, wood warblers, flycatchers, tanagers, thrushes, and other marvelous birds. It's a world we don't want to see.
So, let's make a difference by choosing products that are kind to our forests and our planet. When you shop, look for items that are "forest and Earth" friendly. For the best eco-friendly choices, opt for 100% organically grown foods like apples, plums, cherries, peaches, pears, and apricots. If you're a fan of avocados and bananas, make sure they carry the certified organic label. And when it comes to nuts, organic pecans are the most environmentally friendly option.
And here's a fun idea: Don't forget to give a tree a hug today! 🌳❤️
Did you know that in the vast Canadian boreal region, there could be up to five billion land birds? These feathered friends come in all shapes and sizes, from majestic hawks to tiny hummingbirds. Some stay year-round, while others make the long journey during migration. This incredible ecosystem, with its expansive wetlands, serves as a bustling nursery for over 12 million waterbirds and millions of land birds.
