Pukaskwa National Park wolves threatened by new logging road

A proposed logging road to be built by forestry giant Domtar Inc. in the White River Forest threatens Pukaskwa National Park's wolf population. The road will cut through an extensive wilderness corridor along the park's northern boundary and will intersect the territories of four wolf packs and an important Woodland Caribou Recovery zone. Caribou, a provincially threatened species and wolves depend on large tracts of contiguous roadless wilderness to survive.

Along with increased traffic of logging trucks, this road will open up a previously remote area to public motorized access.
