Faisal Moola was interviewed for the Toronto Star article that discusses the application of cutting-edge technology (drones) in the reforestation of Canada. Faisal states that this technology might one day replace the days of tree planters planting millions of trees by hand. Planting trees is a critical strategy in the mitigation of climate change.
Meet the Geography Student Society (GSS) at the University of Guelph. This is a group of students, from a variety of academic backgrounds, with a shared interest in geography. We meet on Wednesdays at 5:45pm for discussions, game nights, social hours, academic help, and more.
