Pukaskwa National Park, Ontario, Canada 05

Description : The park is quintessential shield country, an ancient plateau of granite and gneiss riddled with rock-rimmed lakes dissected by tumbling rivers and covered by dense boreal forest. In this wilderness roam moose, black bear, wolves and smaller species adapted to the northern forest of black spruce, jack pine and white birch. A small herd of woodland caribou, rare in this part of Canada, roams the park. This herd is decreasing due to forestry operations and habitat change in lands adjacent to the park. Their decline emphasizes that, like in so many parks, habitat requirements for large mammals are not encompassed by park boundaries
