Quebec lagging in biodiversity targets
MONTREAL – Environmentalists want the Quebec government to do better when it comes to protecting the province’s biodiversity.
The province is supposed to protect 17 per cent of land and fresh water areas, but so far, they’ve only managed to protect nine per cent.
The numbers are even worse for coastal and marine lands.
So far, only one of the 10 per cent target has been met.
