Mapping the Health of Canada's Rivers
The World Wildlife Fund has been assessing the health and threats to Canadian rivers. A new interactive map has been released, WWF Watershed Reports, which allows you to view the health and threat level to Canada's watersheds.
The zoomed out map view on WWF Watersheds Reports provides a choropleth view of the health and threat level to twelve Canadian watersheds. You can select any of the twelve watersheds to view a more detailed overview of the selected watershed, its current health and the threats it faces. When you select an individual watershed the map also zooms in and provides a more detailed choropleth view of the health and threat level in the whole watershed area.
Currently the WWF has assessed the health of twelve watersheds. More watersheds will be added to the map when their assessments are completed.
