LOCATION
The city of Toronto has changed lots over the years starting with the amounts of buildings. For example if you were to look at its shoreline 100 years ago and now you will find that there are now a considerable amount more buildings. Because there are so many more buildings, the amount of people and cars has also increased, leading to more pollution in the environment around them and less vegetation. The decreases vegetation means less shelter and homes for wildlife causing many to have to relocate to find new homes. (Toronto does have nature reserves and trails)

There are rivers(Don), ravines, lakes(Ontario), creeks(Mimico), harbour(Toronto Harbour), and some densely forested trails in Toronto(Crothers Woods).The harbour was naturally created by sediment buildup from lake currents that created the Toronto Islands. The most common animals are foxes,racoons,coyotes, skunks and squirrels. Maple, pine, oak, and cedar trees can all be found in Toronto. There are many different types of plant families you will find such as the carnation, pea/bean, sedge, plantain and smart weed/buckwheat. Generally the land in Toronto is flat with not much change in elevation and has no large mountains. When you visit Toronto you will find many large buildings, skyscrapers and highways/freeways that lead in and out the city. Some examples are the CN tower that stands 553m high and one of the busiest highways in the world; highway 401. You can expect to find lots of culture within this big city; there are many different types of restaurants, house styles, religions, people, and places of worship. For example there is a huge range of cuisine you could find; Italian(ORO), european(The Elm Tree), Japanese(Yutaka), Mexican(The Local Gest), Chinese(DiaLO), Greek(Athens)...ect A wide variety of people ( Asian,Spanish,British, Indian, and English) with different religions ( Christian, Buddhist, Catholic and Sikhism) and places of worship ( temples: PO chai, churches:West united, mosques: and Cathedrals:St.James)
For both of these examples people had to dress a lot warmer and have proper protection for themselves, cars, houses, and other structures that could be damaged from the weather.
Plastic in the Great Lakes: garbage and plastic in the oceans has always been an issue, but recent research shows that it has
also made its way into the Great Lakes. This has significant impact on the wildlife in the area; animals such as birds and fish are often harmed because they are not actually eating real food. In turn the humans and other animals that eat the fish over time will develop negative results.
CLIMATE
In the city of Toronto 50cm to 85cm is the average amount of precipitation they receive year round, during the winter months temperature can drop to -7.9 degrees and then rise up to 25 degrees in summer
