To help maintain water quality and quantity in the boreal forest, Alberta-Pacific Forest Industries Inc. (Al-Pac) is contributing $1 million towards the Boreal Conservation Project (BCP).
BCP is a new partnership between Al-Pac and Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC), a Canadian wetland conservation company. The project will create a watershed-based conservation plan for a 115,000-sq. km. area of northeastern Alberta, including Al-Pac’s 58,000-sq. km. Forest Management Agreement area.
The project has already begun with the identification of watersheds in the study area, and the initiation of a five-year research plan.
