Dear Friend 

Ontario Tribunal Rules in Favour of Biodiversity 
The threatened Blanding’s Turtle stands at the centre of a decision to stop the construction of a proposed wind energy plant in a globally significant Important Bird Area on the shores of Lake Ontario. The Tribunal’s recent ruling represents a victory for threatened species and for the large numbers of migrating birds that congregate and breed in the IBA.
A win for nature
