Earth Day 2021: TWU researchers share top five recommendations on how to protect a forest
On April 22 Earth Day, the global community draws special attention to considering how climate change is making an impact on our world.
Last summer, researchers from Trinity Western University, led by lead research assistant Vanessa Jones (BSc Biology, 2019), helped to track signs of climate change in Burnaby, B.C., Canada. They did an intensive study of Burnaby’s Central Park, a popular and expansive 86.4-hectare “magnificent coastal rainforest” located in the middle of a busy city and just minutes from a mega shopping centre. Central Park is home to a mature forest featuring coniferous trees such as Douglas fir, western red cedar and western hemlock.
Based on their research, they provided their top five recommendations on how to protect a forest, plus ways that kids can help. They shared their tips with Canadian Teacher Magazine.
