away here and there across New Brunswick are remnants of old growth Acadian
forest. The Acadian forest is unique to our region of Canada and its old
growth is among the most endangered in the country. Until now it lived on in
natural refuges where the terrain was too steep or rough for logging
equipment, or along rivers and streams where logging is limited.

New Brunswick Tree and Shrub Species of Special Concern The New
Brunswick Gene Conservation Working Group was formed in 1997. The goal of
the group is to develop gene conservation strategies for native New
Brunswick trees and shrubs. The first step in achieving this goal was to
identify which species require attention and may need a gene conservation
strategy. This was done by assessing a number of factors for each species.
For example, 1) is the species rare; 2) is there a serious threat from
disease or insect pests that will impact this species; 3) is the preferred
habitat of the species in great demand for other uses?
"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
