Canada | Two firms fined for destroying protected habitat for endangered frog

Two Quebec forestry firms have been fined a total of $40,000 after a judge found they had destroyed the habitat of an endangered species of frog in La Prairie.


The federal Environment Ministry on Tuesday announced that Débroussaillage Québec and Forestière des Amériques Inc. were each ordered last month to pay $20,000 for violating a federal order protecting the habitat of the Western Chorus Frog, a species designated as endangered and at risk of disappearing by 2030.
