Oil sands development is under increasing environmental scrutiny from the media, non-governmental organizations, regulators and governments locally, nationally and internationally. Arguments have been made against the impact of oil sands development on land, water use and wildlife. All parties recognize there is an environmental footprint created by increased oil sands activity, but what is that footprint and what are the techniques being used to manage it?

Join University of Alberta researchers Dr. Anne Naeth, Dr. Glynnis Hood and Dr. Colleen St. Clair as they delve more deeply into defining the oil sands environmental footprint and what is being done to ensure more sustainable harvesting of the resource. >>MORE
