Provincial Caribou Recovery Program

Get Involved Here


What is this engagement about?

The provincial government is embarking on a new program to recover and conserve woodland caribou in British Columbia, and we would like your feedback.
The Caribou Recovery Program is a long-term commitment that will include all B.C. caribou herds in a comprehensive and uniform approach to conservation, based on traditional knowledge and science. The province has already committed to $27 million to ensure a strong start.
Despite the province’s efforts over the years, many of B.C.’s 54 caribou herds are in decline. At the same time, challenges faced by caribou continue to grow, including:

  • climate change effects
  • continued interest by industry and recreational sectors to access caribou regions, and
  • changes to caribou habitats.

There are several ways you can contribute to the Draft Provincial Caribou Recovery Program:

Feedback will be accepted until June 15, 2018 at 4p.m.

How can my contribution make a difference?

Your ideas will be reflected in the final caribou recovery strategy paper that we are targeting for completion spring 2019.
