A well-planned and organized system to manage information is key to the success of the new Caribou Recovery Plan. Good information management is important because the reasons behind decisions on caribou management plans are multiple and complex, and can involve several government and public groups.
The Caribou Recovery Program will develop a central storehouse of field reports, traditional knowledge and other vital details that are used to make decisions. It will include past and current information. Caribou recovery information will be available to government scientists and managers, to the wider scientific community, industry, non-government organizations and the public.
