From the boreal forest to the tundra; from the Prairie grasslands to Ontario’s Carolinian woodlands, Canada is stunningly rich with flora and fauna. Bio-diversity is our most valuable heritage. With 71,000 species which have been scientifically described and another estimated 69,000 * species yet to be named and classified, it becomes crystalline that the protection of our ecological heritage is absolutely paramount.
Canada manufactures 84% of the world’s maple syrup. There are over 30,000,000 taps with roughly 15 million trees tapped in Canada. That’s about one tap/spile/spout for each Canadian. Each tap yields about .8 litres on average.
