Caribou Recovery and Predator Reduction

What is this engagement about?

Predator reduction is being considered by the British Columbia Caribou Recovery Program to support the recovery of the Columbia North, Central Selkirks, Hart Ranges, Itcha-Ilgachuz, Graham, Tweedsmuir-Entiako, Pink Mountain, Chinchaga, North Cariboo Mountains, Klinse-za, Kennedy Siding, Narraway and Quintette caribou herds.

Direct management (i.e., reduction) of predators has the most rapid effect as a short-term, emergency action. These caribou herds cannot afford delays that could jeopardize ongoing recovery efforts and ultimately lead to declines to levels at which they could not be recovered.

The Province of B.C. is seeking input from stakeholders, interest groups and the citizens of B.C. on a five-year approval for continued predator reduction to support the recovery of woodland caribou.

This questionnaire focuses on:

  • caribou recovery in general,
  • predator reduction,
  • and participant demographics.

How can my contribution make a difference?

Your input will help the Province’s decision making process. The feedback will be provided to the Statutory Decision Makers for consideration prior to decision.
