Canada, the world’s second-largest nation, is home to an extraordinary collection of landscapes and wildlife. Spanning the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic oceans, Canada has the world’s longest coastline and is home to more than 70,000 wild species. Identifying, mapping, and understanding the biodiversity of this vast landscape is an extraordinary challenge—and an essential one for Canada to protect its natural heritage.
