The Great Lakes – St. Lawrence Forest is a particularly rich region, home to many more species of flora and fauna than the Boreal Forest to the north.
The Forest Stewardship Council has this to say about the area:
The Great Lakes St. Lawrence forest region is the home of a great diversity of species and habitats. Forestry in deciduous and mixed-deciduous forests of Ontario and Quebec takes place in a landscape that tends to be heavily fragmented, and its ecological integrity at the landscape level is in many regions significantly compromised.
The following are photos of some of the wildlife inhabiting this area (these were taken in the area in question, southwest of Thunder Bay):
