West Fraser Timber logging practices and effect on caribou exposed using Google earth

What a great use of Google Earth... Logging giant West Fraser Timber has come under the hi-tech magnifying glass of Google Earth. ForestEthics, an environmental group, has produced a video that "flies" viewers over West Fraser's operations in endangered caribou habitat in BC and Alberta. The video, Cutting Down Caribou, was posted to YouTube by ForestEthics on Monday, April 23, and can also be viewed on ForestEthics' website at www.forestethics.org/cuttingdowncaribou
