Ontario is so vast that it stretches from temperate hardwood forests in the south to sub-Arctic tundra in the north. In between is the expansive Precambrian Shield with its patchwork of lakes, rivers, and forests that transition from mixed to boreal. These regions plus the Great Lakes and Saint Lawrence River are home to thousands of animals, including iconic provincial bird Common Loon. Large congregations of migratory waterfowl, raptors, shorebirds, and songbirds stage at various points along two flyways, while megafauna like Moose occupy rich forests and Polar Bears roam the tundra lowlands of the far north. Ontario is a great place to learn about animals, and it helps to have a portable reference on hand to focus on the most representative species and establish a solid foundation of knowledge on which to build. You can do this with the beautifully illustrated Ontario Wildlife, which features 140 mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, butterflies, and other insects as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 wildlife-viewing hotspots and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is the ideal companion for educators, learners, naturalists, birders, and wildlife enthusiasts who wish to forge deeper and more meaningful connections with the land through its animal life. Made in the USA.
