The provincial government embarked on a new program to recover and conserve woodland caribou in British Columbia, and requested the public’s 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.
Individuals were invited to contribute ideas directly on the Draft Provincial Caribou Recovery Program by email or mail.
