The provincial government is embarking on a new program to recover and conserve woodland caribou in British Columbia, and over the last 8 weeks, we have asked you for 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.
We have received over 2,000 visits to the caribou discussion paper website which generated around 600 comments.
We have also discussed the ideas in the paper with over 40 stakeholders and at 12 meetings with Indigenous groups.
Your comments will be reviewed and reflected in the final paper that we are targeting for completion in late 2018.
This engagement is now closed.
