Western Great Lakes forests

WWF Abstract

From bald eagles to beavers and from wolves to woodchucks, the Western Great Lakes Forests are teeming with life. Many different types of forest, along with lakeshore habitat and other wetlands, make this ecoregion incredibly diverse and able to support an abundance of wildlife. It is home and refuge for many species that have been wiped out in other areas, such as gray wolves, martens, and lynx. And it is a place where you can still find old-growth forests, just as they existed hundreds of years ago.
