2011 $2 Canadian Legendary Nature - Boreal Forest Circulation 5-coin Pack

Celebrate Canada's Boreal Forest — the world's largest ecosystem — with this legendary $2 commemorative circulation 5-pack.

The United Nations General Assembly declared 2011 as the International Year of Forests to raise awareness on sustainable management, conservation and sustainable development of all types of forests.

Canada's own boreal forest is the world's largest ecosystem, one of its last untouched swaths of forest, and a habitat that covers roughly 58% of our country's massive landmass. Some 15% of our total population – including 80% of members of Canada's First Nations – live within the boreal forest, along with countless species of flora and fauna. Three billion birds flock to the boreal forest every year to breed and fledge their young. It is also home to dozens of mammal, hundreds of fish, thousands of plant, and tens of thousands of insect species.

Our boreal forest's size and qualities as a habitat make it an indispensable resource for the conservation of Canadian wildlife: its soil absorbs and holds more carbon per hectare than any other ecosystem in the world. By keeping carbon, a harmful greenhouse gas, from escaping into the atmosphere, our boreal forest is helping to manage negative environmental impacts on a global scale, and preserving habitats for living beings everywhere.
