What are Boreal Forests?
Boreal Forests are located in the northern hemisphere and comprise coniferous trees which have needles instead of leaves.
Boreal forests throughout the world share many of the same species of animals and plants as Northwestern Ontario's boreal region. Animals such as the Western Roe Deer, Bison, Muskox, Mule, and Reindeer are all living in Boreal forests.
