From: Toronto's Ravines and Urban Forests


Naturalist Jason Ramsay-Brown describes how changes in government policy and community use over the last five years are influencing the health and welfare of Toronto’s natural heritage system. He asserts that historic declines in habitat and species populations must be addressed immediately by tipping the scales in favour of the preservation, protection, and enhancement of nature in Toronto.
