From this article:
"In a report published online this week, Global Forest Watch Canada mapped the historical flight paths and landing points of whooping cranes in Alberta, particularly in the oilsands area."
I contend that the Governments of Alberta and Canada have not adequately considered many other life forms in the approval of industrial developments in Alberta's oilsands region. For example the grizzly bear species, and the caribou species as well as species of birds (ducks) which have been found dead in tailings ponds owned and operated by Oil Sands developers in this Province all are life forms which have been negatively impacted by the Province of Alberta's lack of consideration of them!
