Feb. 1: Caribou Recovery Plan Announced


The province is investing $27 million on a comprehensive, caribou recovery program to protect the long-term survival of the woodland caribou. There are 51 woodland caribou herds in BC divided into four groups: southern mountain, central mountain, northern mountain, and boreal. The comprehensive program will build on existing efforts and will have five key components:

  1. Critical caribou habitat protection and restoration
  2. Maternal penning
  3. Predator management
  4. Research and monitoring
  5. Increased compliance and enforcement.
